Ontogeny and homology in the male palpus of orb-weaving spiders and their relatives, with comments on phylogeny (Araneoclada: Araneoidea, Deinopoidea).
The palps are somewhat Charaxes-like, being S-shaped and porrect; the basal sensory patch of the palpus is broad and elongated, which places Anaeomorpha somewhere between Prepona and Polygrapha Schatz, the latter genus as a member of Anaeinae group (SALAZAR & CONSTANTINO (2001)) in their Synthesis of Colombian Charaxids consider that the taxonomic position of the species is probably located between Archaeoprepona and Pseudocharaxes Salazar & Constantino: type species "Paphia" (Polygrapha) xenocrates Westwood, 1850, but this hypothesis is not supported by the evidence presented".
viridans females, as he found that the two openings of a mated female's epigynum were usually plugged with a hard, black material, often with the two-pronged distal portion of the paracybium of a male palpus inserted in each opening and embedded in the material.
These include stripe (8), greenish brown (9), black (10), diamond palpus (11), black scale (12), golden-yellow (13), green (14), yellow (15), brown (16), pale and dark colour (17), greyish brown (6), grey (18), greyish black (19), and dark mutant (7).
The nomenclature of the male palpus and female epigynum structures follows Redner & Dondale (1983).
They were identified by their antennae, palpus, proboscis, thorax, wings, legs, abdomen, spermathecae characteristics and links to species of the same genus found in the Zulia state.
Ontogeny and homology in the male palpus of orb weaving spiders and their potential outgroups, with comments on phylogeny (Araneoclada, Araneoidea, Deinopoidea).
Maxillary palpus 4-segmented; 2nd and 3rd palpomeres subequal; 3rd widest; 4th longest, shorter than 2 times length of 3rd.
The members of the tribe Bulaeini were also differentiated from the other tribes of the subfamily Coccinellinae by having clypeus with broad anterolateral emerginations; gena never extending on to eye; mandible large with bifid apex; maxillary palpus with terminal segment with dosrsal margin strongly produced anteriorly weakly securiform; pronotum convex anteriorly never excavated anterolaterally.
Palpus with slight apical dilation, no more than twice the palpal base width (Fig.
