For inoculation mycelial plugs of 5mm diameter isolated from a 7-days-old single spore culture were placed onto the ostioles
opening, at the equatorial region of the immature fruit with and without wound (11 fruits per treatment).
Ascomata, however, have slightly papillate ostioles
and Alternaria-like asexual morphs, and recent molecular data shows that Clathrospora has an affinity with the family Pleosporaceae [4, 14].
Ascocarp with terminal straight hairs, up to 1.5 [micro]m long, black septate surrounding the ostiole
. Asci elongated with short stalked, colorless, 10-25 x 20-30 [micro]m, 8 spored, paraphyses lacking.
Abdominal margins reddish dorsally; dorsal median plates dark brown, with light brown spots medially and adjacent to ostioles
of dorsal abdominal scent glands; dorsolateral plates pale; abdomen reddish ventrally; ventral plates dark brown.
Thoracie pleura and sterna: Metathoracic scent gland ostiole
associated with an elongate, evenly curved peritreme terminating relatively far from lateral margin of metapleuron (Fig.
1B) much shorter with markedly subacute apex having posterior margin convex, round beyond ostiole
reaching to much less than 1/2 of evaporatoria, ostiole
with ovate opening, evaporatoria distinct; membrane of hemelytra slightly passing beyond abdomen; distance base scutellum- apex clavus 2.69; apex clavus-apex corium 2.1; apex corium-apex abdomen including membrane 3.8.
There is a collection of beads made of precious stones inside a clay jar with missing ostiole
. This was recovered from Qatar's Al Zubara, and dates between 18th and 19th centuries.
Body of moderate size (8.5 mm -11.4 mm); elongated; generally brown with dark brown punctures; head usually broader than long; paraclypei longer than clypeus and enclosing the clypeus; antennae with basal segment equal or shorter than head apex, second antennal segment longer or slightly longer than third but shorter than fourth; labium reaching or passing beyond middle coxae; pronotum with lateral margin slightly convex, anterior angles slightly toothed or rounded, humeral angles rounded or subrounded; scutellum long and rounded or subrounded at apex; metathoracic scent ostioles
small with large peritreme.
In MLG, the two cell layers adjacent to the abaxial epidermis and the 2-3 cells close to the ostiole
The eggs are milky and contain a filament, and generally are laid in small masses by more than one female into the ostiole
of figs near maturation (Raga 2002).
Pycnidia varying from globose to irregularly-elongated in shape, glabrous; the lower portion colorless and the walls of the cells around the slightly papillate ostiole
light brown, 26-75 x 26-158 [micron]m.
Lateral margins of pronotum completely dentate except humeral angles, dentine on posterior portion slightly less prominent, anterior angles acutely produced but not extending beyond eyes, humeral angles quite acute; length of pronotum 4.0 mm, width 10.0 mm; scutellum reaching to fifth abdominal tergum, with u-shaped apical lobe, subacute at apex; length of scutellum 8.6 mm, and width at base 5.8 mm; metathoracic scent gland ostioles
