1. Leishmania sp.
2. Leishmaniasis, Kala Azar, Aleppo Boil
3. Phlebotomine sand flies
4. Skin cells? The binder also has some organs in it, but no correlation.

Yup that's right! For number four, I did not word it correctly cause I'm dumb lol, I meant to ask in which cells in the human body do the promastigotes of the parasite transform into the amastigotes, to which the answer would be macrophages, or other phagocytic cells, but that was my fault for not wording that correctly oops.

For more information on that last question, look here: https://www.cdc.gov/parasites/leishmani ... ology.html
