Cuticular hydrocarbons and their role in copulatory behavior in Phormia regina (Meigen).
TLDR
It is concluded that the cuticular hydrocarbons of P. regina function as species-specific but not sex-specific mating cues and elicit species- specific copulatory behavior in males. Expand
Innervation of dromyosuppressin (DMS) immunoreactive processes and effect of DMS and benzethonium chloride on the Phormia regina (Meigen) crop
TLDR
Inervation of the crop and crop duct by dromyosuppressin immunoreactive processes that originated in the central nervous system and the effect of dromyosepressin on crop muscle contractions suggest that dromyOSuppressesin is released locally to modulate crop contractions and that crop motility is under neural regulation.

Juvenile hormone regulation of the larval diapause of the Southwestern corn borer, Diatraea grandiosella☆
TLDR
The findings suggest that the initiation and maintenance of diapause are regulated by juvenile hormone titre, and that larvae retain a high titre of juvenile hormone until the last stages of diAPause. Expand
Regulation of mating behavior by nutrition and the corpus allatum in both male and female Phormia regina (Meigen).
TLDR
In addition to nutrition and the CA, ovaries and their developmentaal status can also affect the sexual receptivity in female P. regina. Expand
Faeces feeding by adult Phormia regina (Diptera: Calliphoridae): impact on reproduction
TLDR
Males, in a shorter period of time than females, obtained enough protein from faeces to activate the neuroendocrine system involved in mating, which proved to be the best diet for complete egg maturation. Expand
Insect prothoracic glands: function and ultrastructure in diapause and non-diapause larvae of Diatraea grandiosella
TLDR
A novel vacuum-ligation technique was developed to isolate whole PG's from the hemocoel of last-stage non-diapause larvae and confirmed the need for a hormonal secretion from the PG to initiate molting. Expand
Insect frontal ganglion: fine structure of its neurosecretory cells in diapause and non-diapause larvae of Diatraea grandiosella
TLDR
It is suggested that granules accumulate in the perikaryon of the NS cells of the FG of diapause larvae and suggest that the granula... Expand
Male and female Phormia regina (Diptera : Calliphoridae) trapped at two different baits in the field
TLDR
It is demonstrated that mating in the field usually does not occur during the previtellogenic stage, and it is suggested that P. regina utilized cat feces as an aggregation site for mating. Expand
Diapause of the southwestern corn borer, Diatraea grandiosella: Further evidence showing juvenile hormone to be the regulator
TLDR
Evidence is presented to demonstrate the involvement of juvenile hormone (JH) in regulating diapause in the final larval stage of the southwestern corn borer and shows that the brains of nondiapausing larvae exhibited a higher ecdysiotropic activity than those of pre-, early- or mid-diapauses larvae. Expand
Endocrine Activity retained in Diapause Insect Larvae
TLDR
Evidence is obtained to implicate juvenile hormone (JH) in the regulation of this larval diapause of Saturniid moths and to indicate that, on the contrary, mature diAPause larvae of the southwestern corn borer, Diatraea grandiosella Dyar, must retain a functional endocrine system since they undergo stationary ecdyses during diapsause.
