The Sunn pest, Eurygaster integriceps Put. (Hemiptera: Scutelleridae), is a key pest of wheat in the Middle East and some other areas which causes severe qualitative and quantitative damage. The objective of the current work is to describe the morphology of the midgut of E. integriceps adult. Microscopic studies revealed that foregut consists of oral cavity, pharynx and oesophagus likely other phytophagous Hemiptera. In the Midgut, four anatomical regions could be identified: the first… CONTINUE READING
