Colony composition, protozoan transfer and some life history characteristics of the woodroach Cryptocercus punctulatus Scudder (Dictyoptera: Cryptocercidae)


, : Colony composition, protozoan transfer and some life history characteristics of the woodroach Cryptocercus punctulatus Scudder (Dictyoptera: Cryptocercidae). Behavioral Ecology and Sociobiology, 144: 273-279

Adult pairs of C. punctulatus were reported to be incapable of founding colonies independently because the presence of a recently moulted juvenile was required to transfer encysted symbiotic gut protozoa to newly hatched roaches. Field and laboratory evidence is presented to show that adult pairs of C. punctulatus do found colonies and that juveniles are generally not present to provide neonates with protozoan cysts.
