It is also somewhat similar to Tautoneura Anufriev, 1969 in the Y-shaped connective, with median anterior lobe, but can be distinguished from the formers by the pygofer with 1 dorsal macroseta, without macrosetae in group at basal lower angle; the subgenital plate very short, with 3 macrosetae at upper margin subbasally and 2 robust teethlike setae at apex, some rigid microsetae along upper margin disappeared; connective median anterior lobe present.
Pituitary adenomas usually arise from the anterior lobe of the pituitary gland and are manifested with hormonal disorders or mass effect.
The main blood supply to the anterior lobe is through the portal venous system.
The black pigment patches on the anterior lobe remain prominent until metamorphosis.
There is associated pituitary hypoplasia with height of the anterior lobe measures 3.
7 times longer than wide, about as long as petioles, broadest slightly above the petiolar plexus, subcoriaceous, semiglossy, somewhat bicolorous, dark green above, drying grayish green and weakly glossy above, moderately paler and grayish yellow-green below; anterior lobe 37.
New materialPC-GCUF 10/28 a left broken dp4, PC- GCUF 10/25 a right mandible fragment with p3, broken dp4 and semi erupted anterior lobe of m1, PC-GCUF 10/32 an isolated left p4.
Surstylus (Figs 9, 10) very characteristic: anterior lobe smaller than posterior lobe, subtriangular with short setulae (pegs) only; posterior lobe large, with a short, setose caudal process and a small triangular ventral lobe; longer setae on ventral third of surstylus only.
Anterior lobe of surstylus shiny blackish yellow, linear and narrow with brown setulae on apical margin.
Involvement of the anterior lobe alone occurs in only 15% of cases with the remaining cases involving either the posterior lobe alone or posterior and anterior lobe combined.
