Hymenoptera: Encyrtidae), a parasite of lobate
lac scale Paratachardina lobata (Chamberlin) (Hemiptera: Kerriidae).
species and Natalina (Tongalina) in bearing well-developed, lobate
, scale-like spines.
As a result its brittle crust ruptured and thrust faults (compression) formed distinctive landforms known as lobate
Surface features common in the northern and southern mid latitudes of Mars and known as lobate
debris aprons and lineated valley fill are believed to have formed either as debris flows mobilized by pore ice or as debris-covered glaciers.
Mode of origination of lateral primaries or basal secondaries: (0) three distinct veins in the petiole; (1) basal with lateral primaries forming a margin along a lobate
base; (2) basal, with only one vascular bundle visible in the petiole, including pinnately veined leaves with a pair of strong, basally originating secondaries; (3) suprabasal; (4) Griselinia N/A; (5) Aucuba N/A; (6) Cnestis N/A.
0% HL, about equal in length to blind-side mandible; teeth conical and slightly lobate
or truncate, largest are anterior becoming gradually smaller posteriorly, fewer on ocular-side premaxilla and dentary, 4-10 on ocular-side premaxilla, 20-27 on blind-side premaxilla, 8-15 on ocular-side dentary, 20-29 on blind-side dentary; gill rakers of first arch moderately slender to broad and robust, 6-14 total, 1-6 on upper and 4-9 on lower arch; gill rakers of second arch broad and robust, 6-14 total, 0-4 on upper and 5-13 on lower arch; dorsal orbit round (nearly equal to eye length) to elliptical (posterior rim elongate and much greater than eye length), orbit lenth 22.
The proportions and ornamentation vary considerably between species and within genera, some examples bearing strong, but smooth longitudinal grooves and ridges, and others with antler-like or lobate
, scalelike projections.
In observing many individuals in southern part of Shaanxi Province, we found that the fronds lobed or with 1-2 pair of segments (from lobate
to triangular to lanceolate in shape) at base often occurs in N.
lobatum collected from a redside shiner in Idaho County, Idaho, were primarily lobate
(81%) with the others asymmetrical (Table 2).

To help gauge how the planet may have shrunk, the researchers looked at tectonic features, called lobate
scarps and wrinkle ridges, which result from interior cooling and surface compression.
The species became known in Florida by the vernacular name lobate
lac scale in reference to its taxonomic position in the lac scale family, and to the presence in the female test with 4 prominent lobes, a conspicuous character that is found in some other species of Paratachardina, but distinguishes this species from other scale insects commonly encountered in Florida.
