Musculature of the ovipositor of Scathophagidae (Diptera) with reference to the larval habits

  title={Musculature of the ovipositor of Scathophagidae (Diptera) with reference to the larval habits},
  author={A.N. Ovchinnikov and O. G. Ovtshinnikova},
Structure of the ovipositor sclerites and musculature was investigated in 4 species of Scathophagidae: Cordilura ciliata (Meigen, 1826), Scathophaga suilla (Fabricius, 1794), S. litorea (Fallén, 1819) and Pogonota barbata (Zetterstedt, 1860). Adaptations of the ovipositor structure and muscles associated with changes of the oviposition substrate due to new larval habits (plants and semi-liquid material) are analyzed. Changes of the ovipositor structure of scathophagids with phytophagous larvae… Expand
The muscular system of the ovipositor of Spaziphora hydromyzina (Fallén) (Diptera, Scathophagidae)
The structure of the ovipositor sclerites and muscles was investigated in Spaziphora hydromyzina (Diptera, Scathophagidae).


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.

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 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
The ovipositor morphology in the members of the family Scathophagidae (Diptera) with reference to their biology
Comparative morphological analysis of the author's and literature data on 29 species belonging to 15 genera has shown the constancy of the ovipositor structure within the genera examined, enabling hypothesizing biological features of those species for which the relevant data are not available yet.

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
