Thorax: Thoracic dorsum shiny black, yellow hairs; pleural thorax covered by dense yellow hairs, yellow bristles look like stripe; scutellum
inflated yellow, golden hairs
dark red-brown, silver pruinose except for tiny lateral areas, fine dark red-brown setose (2 long apical macrosetae moderately differentiated).
derived calli were shifted to a modified Murashige and Skoog"s (1962) medium supplemented with 3% sugar (sucrose, maltose or glucose) myo-inositol 100 mg/L, glycine 2 mg/L, nicotinic acid 0.
In this paper, hydroballochory utilizing the specialized calyx structure (the scutellum
and under lip) is discussed.
of immature half embryos were immersed in a full strength Agrobacterium suspension ([OD.
rugosoareolate, rugae not as strong as mesoscutum, areoles smaller.
This report deals with the effects of three GRs, 2,4-D, picloram, and dicamba, on callus induction, callus regeneration capacity, and plant regeneration from scutellum
cultures of four commercial durum cultivars: Ben, Maier, Munich, and Lebsock.
During each flush phase, an average of 30 female flies (see Appendix II for exact sample sizes) were sampled from each of the bottlenecked lines to obtain measurements on eight morphological traits using an ocular micrometer on a dissecting microscope (traits were wing length, wing width, head width, inner-eye separation, scutellum
width, thoracic suture length, and metafemur length; see Bryant 1977, for a full description of these traits).
Head pronotum, scutellum
, is dull ochraceous, thickly and densely punctured with dark brown tinge; eyes dark brown with outer border dull ochraceous; ocelli pale ochraceous; antennae brown; pronotum and scutellum
streaked with dark and light stripes; apex of scutellum
light brown, with few dark brown puncture; each segment of abdomen dark brown with middle portion light brown; membrane of hemelytra bright brown with dark veins; labium ochraceous except a little basal portion of 3rd and entire 4th segment are brown; legs ochraceous brown with dark patches.
67 times as long as axilla; scutellum
densely setose; forewing with 3RSb vein 3.
dark red-brown, largely apruinose except for small anteromedial area, fine white setose (apical macrosetae poorly differentiated).
