Total 28 isolates were recovered from chitinous
rich bulk soil and agriculture land.
The spent pupas were dried, crushed manually and the chitinous
matter was removed.
Terrestrial salamanders evaluate size and chitinous
content of arthropod prey.
The chironomid larval assemblages, represented by their chitinous
head capsules preserved in lake sediments, have become a widely used paleoclimatological indicator group for quantitatively reconstructing past temperatures, especially at high latitudes and altitudes (e.g., Larocque and Bigler, 2004; Fallu et al., 2005; Axford et al., 2009).
As argued by Toft (1980), ant-specialist species tend to eat slower and chitinous
prey, whereas those who are non-ant-specialists tend to eat faster-moving prey such as cockroaches, crickets and spiders.
When the body of an instar has grown too large for its exoskeleton, the rigid chitinous
and calcareous valves are moulted.
The halkieriids bore conical mollusk-like shells as well as calcareous structures similar to the chitinous
bristles typical of polychaete annelid worms.
The mouth sub terminally situated, strongly was chitinous
ghanensis) from the same specimens was probably due to the chitinous
exoskeleton of these mites making them resilient and resistant and would take a longer time to be destroyed, engulfed, and digested by the macrophages and giant cells.
