Sensilla coeloconica ringed by microtrichia in host‐seeking biting midges
The distribution and morphology of antennal sensilla coeloconica in parasitic and predaceous biting midges were studied in females of Forcipomyia (feeding on the blood of frogs), AtrichopogonExpand

Ultrastructural studies on the midgut of biting midge Forcipomyia nigra (Winnertz) (Diptera: Ceratopogonidae).
Biting midges belonging to the genus Forcipomyia are known to be hematophagous, predatory or saprophagous. Different stages of Forcipomyia nigra midges were investigated to provide a description ofExpand

Adipokinetic hormone induces changes in the fat body lipid composition of the beetle Zophobas atratus
In insects, neuropeptide adipokinetic hormone (AKH) released from the corpora cardiaca mobilizes lipids and carbohydrates in the fat body. We examined the developmental differences in the action ofExpand
