We have described the abdominal musculature of female Urophora affinis and Urophora quadrifasciata. Early reports that the ovipositor in tephritids is controlled by the regulation of fluid pressure within the abdomen are confirmed. The myology of the Urophora species differs from that of Ceratitis capitata and Rhagoletis pomonella reported by earlier investigators. These differences appear to be the result of real anatomical variation within the Tephritidae as well as various inadequacies in… Expand
Musculature of the ovipositor of Scathophagidae (Diptera) with reference to the larval habits
TLDR
Investigation of the ovipositor structure in scathophagids with phytophagous larvae and with other types of the larval feeding habits found that changes of the Ovipositors structure are based more on the ovipsitor skeleton than on its muscles. Expand
Peculiarities of muscles and skeleton structure in Campiglossa plantaginis (Haliday, 1833) ovipositor (Diptera, Terthritidae) in association with larval mode of life
TLDR
Structural adaptations of the ovipositor, providing oviposition into different substrates, are discussed in relation to different trophic specialization of larvae. Expand
Musculature of the Ovipositor of Timia erythrocephala Wiedemann, 1824 (Diptera, Ulidiidae)
TLDR
Based on morphological analysis, characters common to Ulidiidae and primitive Tephritidae and supposedly plesiomorphic for Tectritidae are revealed. Expand
The ovipositor musculature of Carpomya schineri (Loew) (Diptera, Tephritidae)
TLDR
Morpho-functional similarity of the ovipositor structure may not only reflect close relationship but also result from common adaptive transformations in the genera Carpomya, Ceratitis and Bactrocera. Expand
Musculature of the ovipositor of Lenitovena trigona (Matsumura) (Diptera, Tephritidae) with reference to the larval saprophagy
TLDR
The structure of the sclerites and musculature of the ovipositor of Lenitovena trigona (Matsumura) a Far Eastern tephritid of the tribe Acanthonevrini with initially saprobiont larva was investigated to facilitate understanding of the morphological changes in the adults associated with larval shift from saprophagous to herbivorous habit.

The ultrastructure of a novel muscle attachment in the Tephritid fruit fly Urophora affinis
The tergosternal abdominal muscles in segments 1–6 of the tephritid fly Urophora affinis have lateral insertions into the pleura as well as terminal insertions into the terga and sterna. The latera...
Revision of the schausi Group of Anastrepha Schiner (Diptera: Tephritidae), with a Discussion of the Terminology of the Female Terminalia in the Tephritoidea
TLDR
A discussion of morphological terminology in the Tephritoidea, especially concerning female terminalia, is presented and a proposed group of four species of Anastrepha is proposed based on characters of the head and the male terminalia. Expand
The ovipositor musculature of Bactrocera depressa Shiraki (Diptera, Tephritidae)
TLDR
The ovipositor musculature of Bactrocera depressa is very similar to that of Ceratitis capitata, a species which lays eggs in soft tissues of various fruits, and the discussed morpho-functional rearrangements proceed within species of a single lineage of the modern classification. Expand
Musculature of the ovipositor of Oxyna parietina (Linnaeus, 1758) (Diptera, Tephritidae) and its relation to the larval habits
TLDR
The structure of the ovipositor sclerites and muscles was studied in the tephritid fly Oxyna parietina inducing galls on the stems of Artemisia vulgaris and similarity of Campiglossa and Oxyna in the structure ofThe ovipOSitor muscles is due to their close relations. Expand
The structure of the female postabdomen and associated sensilla of tephritoid flies (Diptera: Tephritoidea)
The external morphology of Tephritoidea was studied, including the types and distribution of sensilla on the female postabdomen. The complex oviposition behavior of tephritoid flies has resulted in...
