4c); individuals macropterous
or brachypterous (Fig.
Eyes small in macropterous
and brachypterous, never surpassing dorsal or ventral margin of head in lateral view; beginning of postero-ventral series of fore femur distant from the base of the segment; hemelytron with only discal cell or accompanied by a much reduce subbasal cell; hind wings, M shifted to touch Cu directly for a short distance so as to eliminate the m-cu cross vein (Fig.
Same as the macropterous
female, but with neotenic characters as follows: Forewings scale-like, with dense field of microspines throughout the surface, with no trace of venation (Fig.
1983; Zera and Denno, 1997; Zera and Zhao, 2003; Zera, 2005; Poniatowski and Fartmann, 2009), which can promote the colonization of new habitats and areas by macropterous
individuals (Ingrisch and Kohler, 1998; Simmons and Thomas, 2004).
The following abbreviations are used: apterous (apt) and macropterous
Material Examined: REUNION: 1 macropterous
male, 1 macropterous
female, 1 submacropterous female, Entre-Deux, in quiet reaches of a small tributary stream to the Sassa River, 350 m, 21[degrees]14'S, 55[degrees]29'E, 26 November 2013, in the quiet areas of a small brook, D.
All of our specimens have macropterous
hindwings; however, if a different wing morph is discovered, the posterolateral corners of the pronotum probably will be of a different shape.
(long-winged) and brachypterous (short-winged) forms were recorded.
One species is dimorphic in wing length, with both macropterous
and brachypterous forms; but additional variation in other aspects of the morphology of this species generates questions regarding its specific parameters.
Cell 3: With 9 males and 298 macropterous
females of Melittobia digitata Dahms (Hymenoptera: Eulophidae) inside a cocoon of T.
The team correctly spelled slumgullion (a meat stew), macropterous
