Abstract Microdissection and transverse semithin sections were used to perform a light microscopy survey of the gross morphology and cellular anatomy of the alimentary canal, respectively, of Lygus hesperus Knight, a key pest of cotton (Gossypium hirsutum L.), alfalfa (Medicago sativa L.), and other crops. The gross morphology of the alimentary canal showed a relatively unadorned tube compared with other hemipterans, with variably shaped compartments and one small diverticulum. However, the… Expand
Morphology and histology of the alimentary canal, salivary glands and Malpighian tubules in Pyrrhocoris apterus (Linnaeus, 1758) (Hemiptera: Pyrrhocoridae): a scanning electron and light microscopies study
In this study, morphological and histological studies of the alimentary canal and associated salivary gland and Malpighian tubules were conducted for the firebug Pyrrhocoris apterus (Hemiptera:Expand
Characterization of the alimentary canal of the aphidophagous ladybird, Adalia bipunctata (Coleoptera: Coccinellidae): anatomical and histological approaches
TLDR
The anatomy of the alimentary canal of A. bipunctata seems to conform to its carnivorous and recent phylogenetic status within the family Coccinellidae. Expand
Investigation of the midgut structure and ultrastructure in Cimex lectularius and Cimex pipistrelli (Hemiptera: Cimicidae)
TLDR
The results of these studies confirm the suggestion of former authors that the structure of the digestive tract of insects is not attributed solely to diet but to the basic adaptation of an ancestor. Expand
The Sunn pest, Eurygaster integriceps Puton (Hemiptera: Scutelleridae) digestive tract: histology, ultrastructure and its physiological significance.
TLDR
The current results suggest V1-V3 midgut regions play a role in enzyme and absorption, whereas V4 seems to have no function in digestion. Expand
Distinctive features of the alimentary canal of a fungus-feeding hemipteran, Mezira granulata (Heteroptera: Aradidae).
TLDR
The gut epithelia of Mezira granulata, a member of an unusual family of Hemiptera - the Aradidae - are described in this manuscript and are thought to feed on fungi instead of plant or animal materials. Expand
Ultrastructure of the larval midgut of Bittacus planus (Mecoptera: Bittacidae) and Neopanorpa longiprocessa (Mecoptera: Panorpidae).
TLDR
The ultrastructure of the larval midguts of the hangingfly Bittacus planus Cheng and the scorpionfly Neopanorpa longiprocessa Hua & Chou were compared and it was found that the compact longitudinal muscle bands are likely associated with their soil-spraying habit in Bittacidae. Expand
Investigation of midgut's ultrastructure of Notonecta viridis Decourt, 1909 and Notonecta maculata Fab., 1794 (Hemiptera:Notonectidae)
In this study, midgut’s ultrastructure of the Notonecta viridis and Notonecta maculata was examined under electromicroscope (TEM). It was observed that midgut of the Notonecta viridis and NotonectaExpand
Digestive cells in the midgut of Triatoma vitticeps (Stal, 1859) in different starvation periods.
TLDR
The midgut of T. vitticeps showed differences in digestive cells associated with the time after feeding, and the increase of vesicles amount in long starvation periods, which suggests enzyme storage, which is readily used after a blood meal. Expand
Secretion and formation of perimicrovillar membrane in the digestive system of the Sunn pest, Eurygaster integriceps (Hemiptera: Scutelleridae) in response to feeding.
TLDR
PMM in E. integriceps is secreted by epithelial cell membrane when needed and its secretion and formation is regulated by feeding, as its development takes place at 5 h postfeeding. Expand
Ultra-structure and histochemistry of digestive cells of Podisus nigrispinus (Hemiptera: Pentatomidae) fed with prey reared on bt-cotton.
TLDR
It is concluded that species moderately susceptible to Cry1Ac toxin, such as S. frugiperda, can acquire this toxin and expose it to P. nigrispinus, which can interfere with your ability to predation. Expand

Further Study on the Binucleated Epithelial Cells in the Mid-intestine of Heteropterous Insects
TLDR
Based upon the number of segments and the arrangement of caeca, the mid-intestine was classified morphologically into six types; they are Scotinophara, Acanthocoris, Hydrometra, Pirates, Diplonychus and Lygus types; the sixth type, called the LyGus type, was found in the present study. Expand
Effects of phytohemagglutinin (PHA) on the structure of midgut epithelial cells and localization of its binding sites in western tarnished plant bug, Lygus hesperus Knight.
TLDR
Investigating the lethal effect, target tissues and binding sites of phytohemagglutinin (PHA), a lectin from Phaseolus vulgaris L., on the western tarnished plant bug showed that PHA binds preferentially to the midgut region which demonstrates the most severe effects, and that these cells may endocytose the bound PHA.
