Developmental changes in the amount of pigments, inorganic material and uric acid inLocusta migratoria cinerascens Fabr. (Orthoptera, Acrididae) epidermis, during the last larval instar and the imaginal life

Abstract

Locusta epidermal cells accumulate in their cytoplasm various inclusions which give rise to tegumentary patterns of brown spots and lines. Five major types of inclusions are identified.
