Wing disc development during caste differentiation in the ant Pheidole megacephala (Hymenoptera: Formicidae)

, : Wing disc development during caste differentiation in the ant Pheidole megacephala (Hymenoptera: Formicidae). Evolution & Development 6(5): 336-341

The genus Pheidole has three distinct castes in females: queen, major, and minor workers. It has been believed that the larvae of major workers have prominent mesothoracic wing discs, although the minor worker larvae lack them. Here we conducted histological examinations of wing discs during larval development in P. megacephala.
