The structure of the organs taking part in oviposition of Thripidae (ovipositor, ectodermal exit system, spermatheca, accessory gland) has been investigated by light- and electron microscopy. Some histochemical tests were also performed. The general structure of the ovipositor corresponds to that known for other pterygote insects, except for a few pecularities, e.g. the absence of third valvulae (or gonapophyses IX). The spermatheca is a thin-walled vesicle consisting of wall cells and single… CONTINUE READING
