The internal reproductive organs of females and males of Phytalus sanctipauli are described and illustrated. The amount of fat body in the abdominal cavity was assessed. The remaining in the soil, from March to September, of sexually immature females and males bearing the abdominal cavity totally filled with fat body characterized the state of diapause in this species, in Coxilha (52°20'W and 28°05'S), RS, Brazil.

Characterization of the imaginal reproductive diapause of Oebalus poecilus (Dallas) (Hemiptera: Pentatomidae).

Female and males showed the abdominal cavity filled with body fat in the beginning of the hibernation phase and the decrease in fat reserve level occurred from August on for males and from October on for females.

Histomorphology of the Male Reproductive System and Spermatogenesis of Phyllobius (Ectomogaster) fulvago Gyllenhal, 1834 (Coleoptera, Curculionidae): A Light and Scanning Electron Microscope Study

The morphology and histology of the male reproductive system of Phyllobius fulvago were described and discussed in relation to other Coleoptera species. The results show that Ph. fulvago has

Structural and histological observations on the male reproductive system of adult red poplar leaf beetle Chrysomela populi Linnaeus, 1758 (Coleoptera: Chrysomelidae)

The anatomy and histology of the male reproductive system in Chrysomela populi, which is an economically important species belonging to the family Chrysomelidae, is described to better understand the reproductive dynamics.

Presence of larval and adult diapauses in a subtropical scarab beetle: graded thermal response for synchronized sexual maturation and reproduction

Evidence is presented indicating that this beetle has two diapauses that appear to synchronize this long life cycle with the seasons, and adults of this beetle emerge from pupae late in the autumn and remain in the soil for 2 months, effectively serving to synchronizing the time of sexual maturation with the coldest month of the year.

Anatomy and histology of reproductive system of adult male mint leaf beetle Chrysolina herbacea (Duftschmid, 1825) (Coleoptera: Chrysomelidae)

In this study, anatomy and histology of the male reproductive system of Chrysolina herbacea (Duftschmid 1825) are described and illustrated by using light and scanning electron microscopies.

First Comprehensive Study of a Giant among the Insects, Titanus giganteus: Basic Facts from Its Biochemistry, Physiology, and Anatomy

Some of the findings indicate that adult Titanus rely on previously accumulated reserves rather than feeding from the time of eclosion, and that coeloconic sensilla, grouped into irregularly oval fields, and sensilla trichoidea were found.

Repeated loss of variation in insect ovary morphology highlights the role of development in life-history evolution

It is shown that ovariole number evolution has been shaped by a series of transitions between variable and invariant states, with multiple independent lineages evolving to have almost no variation in ovarioel number.

Comparative Anatomy and Histology of Selected Systems in Larval and Adult Phyllophaga anxia (Coleoptera: Scarabaeidae)

The anatomy and histology of digestive, nervous, respiratory, and reproductive systems in 3rd-stage larvae of Phyllophaga anxia are compared with the same systems of adults and it is revealed that the digestive systems of larvae and adults are quite similar.

Preliminary Report on the Physical Ecology of Certain Phyllophaga (Scarabaeidae, Coleoptera)

The relation of temperature to adult emergence and the activities of the larvae is emphasized, and latitude has an important influence upon the length of the cycle.

The behaviour of the adult of Aphodius tasmaniae Hope (Col., Scarabaeidae) in South Australia.

It is suggested that aggregations of larvae that occur around conspicuous objects, such as trees, result from beetles colliding with these objects by chance when they are flying after dark, dropping to the ground and burrowing into the soil to lay eggs there.

Biology of the striped chafer, Odontria striata (Coleoptera: Scarabaeidae) I. The adult, flight and ground surface activity, female reproductive maturation, and food-plant selection

Abstract Aspects of the biology of Odontria striata White included in this report are seasonal activity patterns, female reproductive development, and food-plant selection by adult beetles.


A list of ovariole numbers in 329 species in 45 families of Coleoptera is presented of which about one-third are determinations made by the author, and it is suggested that ovarioel numbers may be of aid to taxonomists and that extremes in Ovariole number may reflect extremes in the level of egg production.
