In this study, we present a new invertebrate infection model to study fungal infections: the tenebrio molitor (beetle) larvae here we performed t molitor larvae infection with one of two important fungal human pathogens, candida albicans or cryptococcus neoformans, and analyzed survival curves and larva infected tissues.
