Larval systematics of North American Coccinella L


, : Larval systematics of North American Coccinella L. Entomologica Scandinavica 26(1): 67-86

Fourth instar larvae of 10 of the 12 species of Coccinella L. occurring in North America are discussed and keyed. Two of the species, Coccinella hieroglyphica L. and C. undecimpunctata L., are included in the key based on published descriptions. Larvae of C. alta Brown and C. fulgida Watson were not available. Coccinella johnsoni Casey is again placed as a junior synonym of C. californica Mannerheim.

Confusion has reigned for many years as to whether Mahonia and Berberis are separate genera. The only character consistently separating the genera is leaf shape, with compound leaves in Mahonia and simple leaves in Berberis sensu stricto. Compound...

In this prospective study, serum hyaluronate (SH) was assayed using a radiometric method (Pharmacia) in 73 osteoarthritis patients and 39 controls. All assays were performed between 8 h 00 and 9 h 00 a.m. because SH levels exhibit circadian variat...

Ordered cortical microtubule arrays are essential for normal plant morphogenesis, but how these arrays form is unclear. The dynamics of individual cortical microtubules are stochastic and cannot fully account for the observed order; however, using...

The rat prepro-thyrotropin releasing hormone (TRH) 178-199 is derived from prepro-TRH by the actions of the endopeptidases, prohormone convertase 1 (PC1) and PC2. PPTRH 178-199 attenuates the synthesis and secretion of adrenocorticotropic hormone...

The detection of human bone morphogenic protein-7 (BMP-7) was achieved using a sequential injection immunoassay (SIIA) system. The SIIA system is based on the binding between BMP-7 and anti-human BMP-7 (AbBMP7)-CdSe/ZnS quantum dot (QD) conjugates...
