Three different ovariole types have been described in the Neuropteroidea. In this review, comparative analysis of their structure and function is presented, and the results are used for phylogenetic considerations. Neuropteran polytrophic ovaries exhibit deviations from the basic polytrophic pattern found in other insects. Asynchronous divisions of germ cells result in a variable and unfixed number of cystocytes per cluster. In contrast to the typically branched system, spatial organization of… CONTINUE READING
