Structure of the ovipositor sclerites and musculature was studied in the tephritid fly Bactrocera depressa Shiraki, whose larvae develop in the fruits of Cucurbita moschata and other Cucurbitaceae. The functioning and adaptations of the ovipositor of this species to laying eggs into soft fruits are discussed with respect to their differences from the ovipositor characteristics in species with different host specializations, e.g., Ceratitis capitata (Wiedemann) (Hanna, 1938), Lenitovena trigona… 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 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 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
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
Taxonomy of Korean Bactrocera (Diptera: Tephritidae: Dacinae) with review of their biology
TLDR
The present study aims at reviewing the naturally occurring Bactrocera species in this country and synonymize Zeugodacus bezzianus Hering with B. depressa. Expand
The functional significance of fruit exocarp on host selection and oviposition by Queensland fruit fly, Bactrocera tryoni (Froggatt) (Tephritidae: Diptera)
TLDR
Results showed that flies selected fruit based on their suitability for offspring survival, not because of the softness or hardness of fruit peel, which offers insights into the evolution of host use by fruit flies and their sustainable management. Expand
Olfactory attraction mediated by the maxillary palps in the striped fruit fly, Bactrocera scutellata: Electrophysiological and behavioral study.
TLDR
It is reported that the olfactory attraction of the striped fruit fly, Bactrocera scutellata, to cue lure and raspberry ketone is mediated by the maxillary palps. Expand
Morphological and functional heterogeneity in olfactory perception between antennae and maxillary palps in the pumpkin fruit fly, Bactrocera depressa.
TLDR
The structural and functional variation in the olfactory sensilla between antennae and maxillary palps suggests that each plays an independent role in the perception of olf factory signals in B. depressa. Expand

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.

TLDR
The abdominal musculature of female Urophora affinis and Uphora quadrifasciata is described and it is confirmed that the ovipositor in tephritids is controlled by the regulation of fluid pressure within the abdomen. Expand
