Musculature of the ovipositor of Oxyna parietina (Linnaeus, 1758) (Diptera, Tephritidae) and its relation to the larval habits

The structure of the ovipositor sclerites and muscles was studied in the tephritid fly Oxyna parietina (Linnaeus, 1758) inducing galls on the stems of Artemisia vulgaris. Adaptations of the ovipositor structure associated with changes of the oviposition substrate due to new larval habits are analyzed. The ovipositor muscles of Oxyna parietina are compared to those of Campiglossa. The genera Oxyna Robineau-Desvoidy, 1830 and Campiglossa Rondani, 1870 belong to the same genus-group of Tephritini… Expand

Musculature of the Ovipositor of Timia erythrocephala Wiedemann, 1824 (Diptera, Ulidiidae)
Based on morphological analysis, characters common to Ulidiidae and primitive Tephritidae and supposedly plesiomorphic for Tectritidae are revealed. Expand


The ovipositor musculature of Bactrocera depressa Shiraki (Diptera, Tephritidae)
The ovipositor musculature of Bactrocera depressa is very similar to that of Ceratitis capitata, a species which lays eggs in soft tissues of various fruits, and the discussed morpho-functional rearrangements proceed within species of a single lineage of the modern classification. Expand
Musculature of the ovipositor of Lenitovena trigona (Matsumura) (Diptera, Tephritidae) with reference to the larval saprophagy
The structure of the sclerites and musculature of the ovipositor of Lenitovena trigona (Matsumura) a Far Eastern tephritid of the tribe Acanthonevrini with initially saprobiont larva was investigated to facilitate understanding of the morphological changes in the adults associated with larval shift from saprophagous to herbivorous habit.

The ovipositor musculature of Carpomya schineri (Loew) (Diptera, Tephritidae)
Morpho-functional similarity of the ovipositor structure may not only reflect close relationship but also result from common adaptive transformations in the genera Carpomya, Ceratitis and Bactrocera. Expand
Peculiarities of muscles and skeleton structure in Campiglossa plantaginis (Haliday, 1833) ovipositor (Diptera, Terthritidae) in association with larval mode of life
Structural adaptations of the ovipositor, providing oviposition into different substrates, are discussed in relation to different trophic specialization of larvae. Expand
The abdominal musculature associated with oviposition in two gall-forming tephritid fruit flies in the genus Urophora
The abdominal musculature of female Urophora affinis and Uphora quadrifasciata is described and it is confirmed that the ovipositor in tephritids is controlled by the regulation of fluid pressure within the abdomen. Expand
