Tetranychus urticae (Acari: Tetranychidae) possesses a sac-like ovary with characteristic oocytes that protrude from the ovarian surface. In nondiapause females, transparent oocytes became opaque with yolk deposition between days 0 and 1 in the adult stage at 20 degrees C. In diapause females, however, ovarian development ceased at a stage having transparent oocytes without yolk deposition; this stage corresponded to the day-0 stage of the nondiapause females. Four partial fragments of the… CONTINUE READING
