After emergence from the puparium, stalk-eyed flies of the family Diopsidae rapidly expand their head capsule so that the eyes and optic lobes are displaced at the ends of stalks that extend from the central head. Because the expansion takes place in only 15 minutes, we are especially interested in ontogenetic modifications that may facilitate such a rapid and dramatic change. To examine the pupal development of the brain, we used Bodian staining in the stalk-eyed fly, Cyrtodiopsis whitei and… CONTINUE READING
