On the Androgenic Gland of the Ghost Crab Ocypoda platytarsis M. Edwards (Crustacea: Brachyura)
It has been shown that the growth of the male reproductive system parallels that of the androgenic gland, and the histologically different cells have been noticed. Expand
Maturation and spawning of a gobiid fish, Oligolepis acutipennis (Cuv. & Val.), from the south‐west coast of India
Seasonal variation in gonad weight and the percentage occurrence of various maturity stages of gonads showed that the fish has a protracted breeding period in which two seasons can be recognized. Expand
Internal morphology and histology of the fish mite Lardoglyphus konoi (Sasa and Asanuma) (Acarina: Acaridiae). I. Digestive system.
The female and male reproductive systems are described from serial paraffin sections and Morphologically the two accessory glands are different and evidences are given for the functional dissimilarity between them. Expand
Internal morphology and histology of the fish mite Lardoglyphus konoi (Sasa and Asanuma) (Acarina: Acaridae). 2. Protonymph
The internal anatomy and histology of the protonymph of the fish mite Lardoglyph1,ts konoi are descriped from paraffin, serial sections, viewed under immersion lens. The protonymph has a wellExpand
The androgenic gland of the shrimp Palaemon dayanus
The androgenic gland of Palaemon dayanusHenderson differs in morphology and anatomy from that of all other known natantian decapods. The gland is attached to the distal extremity of the was deferensExpand
Observations on Variations in the Male Sex Characters and Their Relation to the Androgenic Gland in the Shrimp Macrobrachium idae (Heller)
A majority of the males of the brackish water shrimp, Macrobrachium idae, show a hypertrophy in the length of the second cheliped, the length and spinuosity of the appendix masculina and the width of the vas deferens, during the breeding season, which suggests there is a “cause and effect” relation between the androgenic gland and the primary and secondary sex characters.

Impact of azadirachtin on the haemodynamics of Cyrtacanthacris tatarica L. (Acrididae: Orthoptera)*
A dose-dependent inverse relationship was obtained between the haemolymph volume and total haemocyte number and no deformities were observed in prohaemocytes and spherulocytes. Expand
Internal morphology and histology of the post-embryonic stages of the fish mite Lardoglyphus konoi (Sasa and Asanuma). Acarina: Acaridae 2. Protonymph.
The internal anatomy and histology of the deutonymph of the fish mite Lardoglyphus konoi are described from paraffin sections viewed under immersion lens to indicate a functional state of the alimentary canal. Expand
Sex-reversal and androgenic gland in the fish parasite Irona far (Cymothoidae: Isopoda: Crustacea).
The sequence of changes in the primary and secondary sexual characters of the parasitic isopod Irona far during sex-reversal indicate that it is synchronised with the degeneration of the androgenic gland, leading ultimately to total degeneration in the late female stage. Expand
Internal morphology of the hypopus of Lardoglyphus konoi, a tyroglyphid pest on dried stored fish.
The interna! morphology and histology of the hypopial stage of Lardoglyphus konoi is described from paraffin sections eut at 6 microns and viewed under immersion lens. The cuticle is considerablyExpand
