Morphology of preimaginal stages of Lipara rufitarsis Loew 1858 (Diptera: Chloropidae), a parasite of the common reed (Phragmites australis (Cav.) Trin.)


, : Morphology of preimaginal stages of Lipara rufitarsis Loew 1858 (Diptera: Chloropidae), a parasite of the common reed (Phragmites australis (Cav.) Trin.). Annales de la Societe Entomologique de France 43(1): 57-62

All preimaginal stages of Lipara rufitarsis Loew are described and illustrated in 39 drawings. The facial mask, cephaloskeleton, spiracles and locomotory structures are considered. This is the first description of first- and second-instar larva. Descriptions of third-instar larva, egg and puparium are expanded. The paper forms a basis for a complete description of the life history of this fly.

Previous studies have shown that adrenalectomy (ADX) increases the binding of 3H-DPAT to 5-HT-1A receptors in the hippocampus (HIP) and this effect is partially overcome by corticosterone (CORT) replacement. The present study investigated the time...

Copper/zinc superoxide dismutase (CuZn-SOD, SOD1) is one of the major antioxidant enzymes, and is localized in the cytoplasm to scavenge superoxide. To investigate the physiological role of SOD1 in the ovaries, we analyzed the fertility of Sod1-de...
