  • Notes

    • The title of this episode refers to the name of the insect carrying the infection, Faciphaga emasculata. Although this particular insect is fictitious, there are diseases with symptoms which resemble those depicted in this episode, such as myiasis, in which certain species of fly larvae grow under the skin and emerge from abscesses or boils. On the reality side of the story, scientists do hunt through rain forests for plants and insects for pharmaceutical research, like the unfortunate Dr. Torrance.
