Precocious reproductive development (Neoteny) by larvae of a primitive termiteZootermopsis angusticollis (Hagen)

Abstract

In the absence of a functional reproductive pair, neotenic moults began during the third to fourth weeks after isolation of larvæ from a parent colony, and continued until the 9th to 10th weeks in those groups where the new neotenics were not removed. New neotenics could be distinguished from larvae within one to three days after the moult by several… (More)
