Development and prey consumption of predatory bug Montandoniola moraguesi were observed with Gynaikothrips ficorum as prey.There are three life stages in M.moraguesi,including egg,five nymphal instars and adult.Development rate was positively correlated,in a model of logistic curve,with temperature ranging from 15℃ to 35℃.For egg,the lower development threshold was 7.9℃ with a thermal constant of 107.4 d·degree.For the whole nymphal stage,the threshold was 10.0℃ with a thermalconstant of 298.0… Expand

Ultrastructure and morphology of the compound eyes of the predatory bug Montandoniola moraguesi (Insecta: Hemiptera: Anthocoridae).
TLDR
The morphology and ultrastructure of the compound eye of the predatory bug, Montandoniola moraguesi, was investigated using scanning and transmission electron microscopy and the evolution and function of eyes in predators are briefly discussed. Expand
