Prepupae of the Mediterranean arctiid moth Cymbalophora pudica spend hot spring and summer months in a summer diapause (aestivation). Although their cold-hardiness (survival after 1-day exposure to subzero temperatures) is relatively low, it may be moderately enhanced by prior cold acclimation at decreasing above-zero temperatures. In this study, fatty acids of phospholipids and triacylglycerols were analysed in five different tissues (body wall, midgut, fat body, silk glands and brain… CONTINUE READING
