with short, narrow duct and well-developed sac (SCHILEYKO, 1999).
An enlarged sac-like bursa copulatrix
opened into the common oviduct just posterior to the spermatheca (Fig.
Hacia el oviducto comun desemboca la bursa copulatrix
, mediante un ductus seminalis corto (Fig.
On one side, each spermatheca is connected with the bursa copulatrix
, and on the other side, they are connected with the uterus externus that leads to the genital opening.
Smooth transition from ductus to oval bursa copulatrix
Aedeagus with median lobe, narrower, apically long apex, parameres contact to median lobe, basal plate rounded, median strut slightly passes in the cavity, female genitalia with bursa copulatrix
leaf-like with several denticles, tubercles on surface .............Cardiophorus varius Cate et al
ludens include paired ovaries, lateral oviducts, common oviduct, bursa copulatrix
, ventral receptacle, three spermathecae, accessory glands and ovipositor sheath.
Sperm are stored temporarily in the bursa copulatrix
and for longer periods (3 months or more) in a second storage organ, the seminal receptacle, which usually is located deep within the oviduct (Buckland-Nicks et al., 1999).
Sperm was visible through the walls of the internal organs (the bursa copulatrix
pteronyssinus by the shape of the distal portion of the bursa copulatrix
in the female and the enlarged second pair of legs and length of the hysteronotal shield in the male.
