Thanks Peter, pics are a great education tool. Would love to hear more about the tongue indicator. Is that a key AFB indicator? Does it always show up? Early or late? Thanks again for the pics. Stan

The tongue definitely distinguishes this disease from other brood diseases. It is not usually seen, but if it is you can be sure "you've got it".

> The formation of a pupal tongue is one of the most characteristic, but rarely seen, signs of the disease and precedes the formation of the scales. -- WHO Manual of Diagnostic Tests and Vaccines for Terrestrial Animals
