Cleavage in Cecidomyidae (Diptera) is characterized by the elimination of chromosomes from presumptive somatic nuclei. The full chromosome complement is kept by the germ-line nuclei. The course of cleavage in Mayetiola destructor (Say) is described. After the fourth division two nuclei lie in the posterior polar-plasm and become associated with polar granules, and fourteen nuclei lie in the rest of the cytoplasm. All the nuclei possess about forty chromosomes. During the fifth division the… CONTINUE READING
