[With yellow on clypeus, propodeum, and posterior bands on T1-T2; usually with yellow also on scutellum
In many species, strong asymmetrical growth in the lower scutellum
and coleoptile region of the proembryo displaces the root cap and plumule away from their original basal and lateral position (Goetghebeur 1986).
The eyes are completely hairy in subgenus Pandasyopthalmus and with double band of hairs, hind margin of scutellum
with distinct teeth in subgenus Serratoparagus and without teeth in subgenus Paragus.
Pronotum bell-shaped, without middle carina and middle stria, without erect groups of scales; 1.5 times longer than width at apex, 0.7 times longer than width in middle and at base, widest near middle, narrowing to apex; lateral margins almost straight; anterior margin 0.5 times as long as posterior margin; pronotal punctures round, dense and large; distance between adjacent punctures distinctly smaller than diameter of puncture; intervals convex; scutellum
rhombic, 1.5 times longer than width in middle.
dark red-brown, silver pruinose except for tiny lateral areas, fine dark red-brown setose (2 long apical macrosetae moderately differentiated).
: Basal third nearly impunctate, becoming more yellowish brown and densely punctate on distal two thirds.
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 0.5 mg/L, pyridoxin 0.5 mg/L, thymine 0.1 mg/L and solidified with gelling agent (phytagel, gelrite or agar).
Female: Overall length 2.90, length from tip of tylus to cuneal fracture 1.95, maximum width (across base of cuneus) 1.10; similar to male in general structure and coloration, with following exceptions: pronotum, scutellum
, clavus and inner corium dark yellow, outer corium broadly pale green (Fig.
Isotopic changes approaching the [[delta].sup.13]C of the provided benthic diatoms were detected from postlarvae fed the benthic diatoms Achnanthes longipes, Cocconeis scutellum
The nutlets form in a fruiting calyx called a scutellum
that expands in size and changes in color from green to yellow and finally brown.
Immature embryos were dissected from young caryopses under a stereo binocular and the embryonic axis was bisected longitudinally to destroy the embryonic axis, then after 3 days remaining embryonic tissue at the half scutellum
tissue was removed.
The students learn that the endosperm holds most of the corn starch, but the corn oil is mostly in the embryo, especially including the cotyledon (scutellum
