The structure of the ovipositor sclerites and musculature was studied in the tephritid fly Carpomya schineri (Loew) whose larvae develop in the fruits of Rosa. The structural characters of the ovipositor of this species facilitating laying eggs into such fruits are discussed. The ovipositor musculature and functioning in Carpomya are very similar to those in Ceratitis and Bactrocera; species of all these genera lay eggs in fruits. In the details of the ovipositor musculature, Carpomya is more… 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
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

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 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
The abdominal musculature associated with oviposition in two gall-forming tephritid fruit flies in the genus Urophora
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
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
