Male genital musculature of Therevidae and Scenopinidae (Diptera: Asiloidea): Structure, homology and phylogenetic implications
TLDR
Evidence from musculature confirms that the inner stylus of Therevidae is homologous with the gonostylus of other asiloid flies, and implications for the phylogeny of the Asiloidea are discussed. Expand
The ovipositor musculature of Bactrocera depressa Shiraki (Diptera, Tephritidae)
TLDR
The ovipositor musculature of Bactrocera depressa is very similar to that of Ceratitis capitata, a species which lays eggs in soft tissues of various fruits, and the discussed morpho-functional rearrangements proceed within species of a single lineage of the modern classification. Expand
Peculiarities of muscles and skeleton structure in Campiglossa plantaginis (Haliday, 1833) ovipositor (Diptera, Terthritidae) in association with larval mode of life
TLDR
Structural adaptations of the ovipositor, providing oviposition into different substrates, are discussed in relation to different trophic specialization of larvae. Expand
Musculature of the abdomen and male genitalia of a member of Celyphidae (Diptera, Cyclorrhapha)
TLDR
The secondary symmetry of male pregenital and genital sclerites, muscles, and merged segments 7 and 8 in Celyphidae possibly indicates that this family is closely related to Lauxaniidae and Diopsoidea. Expand
Musculature of the Male Abdominal Segments and Terminalia in Musca autumnalis De Geer, 1776 and Pyrellia rapax (Harris, 1780) (Diptera, Muscidae: Muscini)
TLDR
Morphological analysis of sclerites and muscles of abdominal and pregenital segments and genitalia of males in Pyrellia rapax, Musca autumnalis, and M. domestica demonstrates processes of reduction in Musca as compared with P. rapax and S. stercoraria. Expand
The ovipositor musculature of Carpomya schineri (Loew) (Diptera, Tephritidae)
TLDR
Morpho-functional similarity of the ovipositor structure may not only reflect close relationship but also result from common adaptive transformations in the genera Carpomya, Ceratitis and Bactrocera. Expand
Skeleton and musculature of the male genitalia in the family Nothybidae (Diptera)
Sclerites and musculature of the male genitalia of Nothybidae (Diptera) were studied for the first time. Symmetry of the genital and pregenital sclerites, similar to that in Psilidae, was revealed.Expand
Musculature of the ovipositor of Oxyna parietina (Linnaeus, 1758) (Diptera, Tephritidae) and its relation to the larval habits
TLDR
The structure of the ovipositor sclerites and muscles was studied in the tephritid fly Oxyna parietina inducing galls on the stems of Artemisia vulgaris and similarity of Campiglossa and Oxyna in the structure ofThe ovipOSitor muscles is due to their close relations. Expand
Musculature of the male genitalia of Chyliza vittata Meigen (Diptera, Psilidae)
TLDR
In whole, the morphology of the male genital muscles in Chyliza is close to the ground plan of Cyclorrhapha, most probably due to reduction processes. Expand
