The pronotum in Coleoptera are greatly enlarged found between the head and mesothorax
Collar segment with two very large papillae without setae in dorsal region; dorsal sclerotized plate occupying pro and mesothorax
with a row of setae on superior margin; pleural papillae very well developed and one spiracle each side of the plate (Figure 12).
brownish yellow shaded widely with gray except, carinae and margins black; rest of thorax yellowish.
Margin of prothorax ocher with a white spot dorsally on mesothorax
, and a conspicuous black spot dorsally on A4 to A5 abdominal segment.
Mature (third instar) agabine larvae have spiracles on pleural regions of the mesothorax
and abdominal segments 1-7 and head lengths of 1.
No humeral bristles and, associated with the rearward extension of the mesothorax
, most posterior of 3 bristles on each notopleuron well behind other two bristles.
5 [micro]L of the solution, containing ah aliquot of each one of the treatments, was applied directly on the larval mesothorax
elongate and > 2x longer than head and pronotum combined.
Pronotum long, slightly swollen above upper end of epomia, epomia itself long and very strong, mesoscutum centrally rather finely and sparsely punctate with hairs, laterally weakly punctulate with setae; notauli present but weak and shallow; mesopleuron with sparse fine setiferous punctures; epicnemial carina rather straight, not reaching anterior margin of mesopleuron and exceeding level of lower corner of pronotum; sternal part of mesothorax
of Diptera species has become enlarged to contain the enormous flight muscles as a result of their reliance on the forewings for flight.
The dorsal longitudinal flight muscles (DLMs) are situated immediately ventral to the dorsal portion of the mesothorax
(Pfau and Koch 1994).
