Seasonal effects on cuticular permeability and epicuticular lipid composition inCentruroides sculpturatus ewing 1928 (Scorpiones: Buthidae)

Abstract

The epicuticular lipids of the scorpion,Centruroides sculpturatus (Buthidae), are composed mostly of hydrocarbons and cholesterol, with free fatty acids and alcohols being present in smaller proportions. Hydrocarbons of summer scorpions are predominantly long-chain branched alkanes. The fatty acid component is composed primarily of saturated and unsaturated… (More)
