In order to determine the duration of the puparial stage, we allowed flies to attack 9 groups of ants from different colonies for 3 to 4 d each.
Posterior end (post) strongly upturned and higher than the puparial dorsal surface; spiracular disc shrunken; lobes vestigial, hardened and visible; interspiracular processes stunted, bonded, free, folded or raised.
The isolated puparium was checked once a week, and by October 23th several developing larvae could be observed through the puparial case.
First observation of parasitic relations between big-headed flies, Nephrocerus Zetterstedt (Diptera: Pipunculidae) and crane flies, Tipula Linnaeus (Diptera: Tipulidae), with larval and puparial descriptions for the genus Nephrocerus.
Phylogeny and systematics of European predacious Syrphidae from larval and puparial stages.
The correlation between host spittlebug adult length and puparial length approached but did not reach statistical significance (r = 0.46, df = 15, P = 0.062).
The third instar larval mouthhooks and puparial posterior spiracles were illustrated by Skidmore (1985), based on a single puparium from Turkmenistan and presumably one of the series found on a dead tortoise (Vlassov & Stackelberg, cited in Hennig 1964).
A further demonstration of the huge variation in results are the estimates to achieve 99% mortality of larval and puparial stages of 407,317 and 38,039 Gy, respectively!
The distance between posterior end of the orifice and puparial caudal margin measured 155-157 [micro]m long.
Cephaloskeletons (Figs 28, 29) were removed from the ventral puparial cap by soaking in water overnight and by subsequent maceration in 10 % potassium hydroxide (KOH), mounted on a slide in a thin film of set glycerin jelly and photographed at a range of focal planes with a [R]Nikon TE2000-E compound microscope and digitized using [R]Combine ZP Image Stacking Software.
Tuberculate setae are formed from dorsal elevation of puparial cuticle, ts slightly swollen on puparial surface and without articulating circle or groove, surface puffy, with ridges or grooves or minute tubercles, not smooth, gradually narrowing towards apex and forming a socket in which apical seta is fixed.
