A quantitative analysis of wing pattern in the Culicoides pulicaris species group (Diptera: Ceratopogonidae)


A quantitative analysis of wing pattern in the Culicoides pulicaris species group (Diptera: Ceratopogonidae)



Zoological Journal of the Linnean Society 72(1): 21-41



ISSN/ISBN: 0024-4082

Wing pattern is very important in the taxonomy of the genus Culicoides. To date no quantitative method has been described permitting the inclusion of wing pattern characters with traditional morphometric characters in multivariate studies. Two alternative methods for quantifying wing pattern are developed here. The first superimposes a grid onto a wing and the 420 'characters' generated are scanned for pigmentation.
