(F.) donatoi the pigmentation pattern of flagellomeres and abdominal terga, but the spermathecae are larger and lightly sclerotized
, the fore and midlegs are entirely yellowish, the hind femur is mostly yellowish with a subapical, broad dark brown ring and the costal ratio is larger.
The pharyngeal sclerite was well sclerotized
. The mouth hooks were massive, symmetrical, and strongly sclerotized
longicirrus n.sp., while funnel shaped opening with highly sclerotized
vaginal tube in C.
of the described species are: larval prothoracic spatula absent, collar segment with two very large papillae without setae in dorsal region; dorsal sclerotized
plate occupying pro and mesothorax, lacking central papillae in mesothorax; pleural papillae very well developed in prothorax; terminal segment with four pairs of setose papillae (one setae long, one median and two short) not placed in lobes.
-- ITA absent; embolus not as above 7 7 Embolus tip broad (Fig.39) 9 -- Embolus tip slender (Fig.30) 8 8 RTA long with darkly sclerotized
elongated hooked tip (Fig.39) peterwebbi sp.
GENITALIA: Dorsal labiate plate small, folded, entirely membranous, sclerotized
rings absent (Fig.
1, 7); embolus surrounding tegulum, supported by conductor; conductor sclerotized
ventrally, with retrolateral laminar projection supporting embolus tip (Figs.
A direct relation of proventriculus morphology with diet is established for termites: these wood feeders show a proventriculus armed with stronger teeth and strongly sclerotized
appendices, compared to noncellulose feeders, where the proventriculus is less sclerotized
and presents reduced appendices (Gibbs 1967, Lebrun 1985, Lebrun & Lequet 1985, Caetano 1988, Bland & Rentz 1991).
The tip consisted of a long, thin sclerotized
tube (the flagellum) that was nearly as long as the inflated endophallus, and which was of uniform diameter until it tapered at its distal end (Fig.
5); distal opening partially covered by a trifid lamina with longitudinal, sclerotized
Vagina tubular dextral well sclerotized
; seminal receptacle rounded.
