Male reproductive organs of Repipta taurus (Heteroptera: Reduviidae) consist of heart-shaped bipartite testes lying on the sides of the alimentary tract. From the base of each testis arises vas deferens which opens into the ductus ejaculatorius. There are two accessory glands, each consisting of five lobes. Duct from each accessory gland opens directly into the ductus ejaculatorius. The chromosomal complement of Repipta taurus is 2n = 28 = 24A + X1X2X3Y. Male meiosis shows a unique pattern of… 
Chromosomes and their meiotic behavior in twelve species of the subfamily Harpactorinae (Hemiptera: Heteroptera: Reduviidae) from north India.
TLDR
Cytogenetic trends within the subfamily have been discussed in the light of newly added cytogenetic data of 12 species, which may later be used in tracing the evolution of chromosomes in Harpactorinae.
Analysis of the karyotype structure in Ricolla quadrispinosa (Linneus, 1767): inferences about the chromosomal evolution of the tribes of Harpactorinae (Heteroptera, Reduviidae)
TLDR
A proposal of karyotype evolution for the subfamily Harpactorinae, based on existing phylogenetic studies for the group is presented and indicated that different chromosomal rearrangements are involved in the evolution of the species.
A new species of the genus Rhaphidosoma Amyot et Serville, 1843 (Heteroptera, Reduviidae), with data on its chromosome complement
TLDR
A new species of Rhaphidosoma Amyot et Serville, 1843, known from the Oriental Region, and the first record of the genus for Myanmar and Indochina is described, characterised by the absence of distinct tubercles on the abdominal tergites of the male and female.
