Abstract The brain and suboesophageal complex of adult and larval Strepsiptera were examined, described and reconstructed 3-dimensionally. The results are compared to conditions found in other small insects such as Sphaeriusidae, Meruidae and Ptiliidae (Coleoptera), Pteromalidae (Hymenoptera), Zoraptera, and Collembola. Morphological modifications correlated with miniaturization in different groups and different life stages are discussed. General features are a correlation between size… Expand
