The occurrence of multiple and long matings seem to play an important role in the reproduction of the predatory stinkbugs such as Podisus nigrispinus (Dallas). However, the mechanisms underlying these behaviors remain unclear. In this study, the reproduction of P. nigrispinus was investigated as function of females' choice for their mating pair based on(More)
Males of the predatory stinkbug, Podisus nigrispinus (Dallas) (Hemiptera: Pentatomidae), accomplish long and multiple matings. We hypothesize that this behavior is due to time requirement for spermatozoa production and their transference to the females. Thus, this work investigated the effect of mating status of males and mating duration on spermatozoa(More)
