The specific identification and systematic of triatomines have been based fundamentally on morphological observations. These organisms are classified into complexes and specific subcomplexes, principally for morphological parameters and geographical disposition. The use of cytogenetic analyzes has been represented as a tool in systematic and taxonomy of triatomines. Thus, the present work, through the analysis of spermiogenesis, aims to characterize this stage of spermatogenesis in triatomines… Expand
Description of the diploid chromosome set of Triatoma pintodiasi (Hemiptera, Triatominae).
TLDR
The karyotype of, and spermatogenesis in, T. pintodiasi is described in order to elucidate the reproductive biology and taxonomy of the species and to gain a better understanding of the specific status of this cryptic species. Expand
Spermatological Morphology of Triatoma Species (Hemiptera: Reduviidae: Triatominae)
TLDR
Using electron microscopy, the sperm cells of the four taxa examined were found to have similar ultrastructural morphology, confirming the hypothesized synapomorphies of sperm within the suborder Heteroptera (Hemiptera). Expand
Sperm dimorphism in the Triatoma brasiliensis species complex and its applications
TLDR
The ultrastructural features observed confirm the hypothesis, raised by previous studies, that they are synapomorphic to the suborder Heteroptera, and supports the hypothesis of hybrid speciation of this member of the complex. Expand
Distribution of constitutive heterochromatin in Triatoma melanocephala (Hemiptera, Triatominae).
TLDR
The present study demonstrated a tentative relationship between T. melanocephala and P. lutzi, and it is emphasized that other comparative studies should be conducted between these species, such as experimental crosses and molecular, enzymatic, morphological, and morphometric analyses to determine whether these species are actually evolutionarily related or if the number of chromosomes and the heterochromatin pattern emerged as homoplasies in T. lUTzi.

Cystic spermatogenesis in three species of the prolixus complex (Hemiptera: Triatominae)
Abstract The reproductive biology of triatomines and, more specifically, the general aspects of spermatogenesis and spermiogenesis are well known. However, reported structural analyses of theExpand
Spermatogenesis and nucleolar behavior in Triatoma vandae and Triatoma williami (Hemiptera, Triatominae).
TLDR
The karyotype of T. vandae is confirmed and characteristics that differentiate it from T. williami during meiosis are described, and the phenomenon of nucleolar persistence in both species is described. Expand
Spermiotaxonomy of the tribe Rhodniini (Hemiptera, Triatominae).
TLDR
Spermatid analysis made it possible to confirm the monophyly of the Rhodniini tribe, because Psammolestes tertius had the same pattern as that described for Rhodnius. Expand
First cytogenetic study of Cavernicola pilosa Barber, 1937 (Hemiptera, Triatominae).
TLDR
The results suggest that adaptation to troglodytism did not result in differences in spermatogenesis in this vector and the initial cytogenetic data presented are important in characterizing the sperMatogenesis and heterochromatic patterns of C. pilosa. Expand
Diploid chromosome set of kissing bug Triatoma baratai (Hemiptera, Triatominae).
TLDR
The karyotype of Triatoma baratai is examined and the results are compared with those of other species in the Matogrossensis subcomplex in order to increase the understanding of vector potential and the cytotaxonomic classification of this insect. Expand
Diploid chromosome set of kissing bug Triatoma baratai (Hemiptera, Triatominae)
TLDR
The karyotype of Triatoma baratai is examined and the results are compared with those of other species in the Matogrossensis subcomplex in order to increase the understanding of vector potential and the cytotaxonomic classification of this insect. Expand

Cytogenetic analysis in the spermatogenesis of Triatoma melanosoma (Reduviidae; Heteroptera).
TLDR
The knowledge of the characteristics of triatomines, in particular, heteropyknotic degree, kinetic activity, formation of sex chromosome achiasmatic pseudobivalency, confirmation of the fragmentation phenomenon, and post-meiotic nucleolar reactivation is extended. Expand
Spermatogenesis and nucleolar activity in Triatoma klugi (triatomine, Heteroptera)
TLDR
The karyotype of male T. klugi and a meiotic analysis including the nucleolar behavior during spermatogenesis are described and a contribution to the study of chromatin behavior and nucleolar persistence in meiosis is made. Expand
Morphological Studies on the Triatoma brasiliensis Neiva, 1911 (Hemiptera, Reduviidae, Triatominae) Genital Structures and Eggs of Different Chromatic Forms
TLDR
A comparative morphological analysis of external genital structures and of eggs showed statistically significant differences: the macromelasoma population presented the longest length while the shortest was recorded in the brasiliensis population (2.29 mm). Expand
Cytogenetics and Genome Evolution in the Subfamily Triatominae (Hemiptera, Reduviidae)
TLDR
The chromosomal variability of the subfamily Triatominae (Hemiptera, Reduviidae) is summarized and how it may reveal aspects of genome evolution in this group is summarized. Expand
Karyotype and spermatogenesis in Triatoma lenti (Hemiptera: Triatominae), a potential Chagas vector.
TLDR
The karyotype of male T. lenti was found to be 2n = 20A + XY, demonstrating that this organism has the modal chromosome set found in triatomines, contributing to biological data that will be useful for understanding this potentially important Chagas disease vector. Expand
Morphological study of the eggs and nymphs of Triatoma dimidiata (Latreille, 1811) observed by light and scanning electron microscopy (Hemiptera: Reduviidae: Triatominae).
TLDR
Morphometric data were obtained and proved to be useful for distinguishing T. dimidiatacan instars, which can be distinguished from each other by characteristics of the pre, meso and metanotum. Expand
Isoenzymes detect variation in populations of Triatoma brasiliensis (Hemiptera: Reduviidae: Triatominae).
TLDR
To evaluate whether the chromatic pattern is a morphological variation of different melanic forms within T. brasiliensis or due to interspecific variation, field collections were performed in localities where these three subspecies have been described. Expand
Cytotaxonomy of the triatominae (Reduviidae: Hemiptera)
TLDR
It is suggested that fragmentation is the major factor for chromosome evolution in the group and relationships based on chromosome evidence in the subfamily have been discussed. Expand

TLDR
The statistical analysis shows that the T. rubrovaria eggs are larger that those of T. circummaculata, and microscopical observations revealed that the chorial rim and the spermatic groove are less evident in T. Rubinia. Expand
