Energy reserves and carbohydrate feeding in field-caught, female horse flies (Haematopota pluvialis) (Diptera: Tabanidae)


Myia 3: 403-414
Energy reserves and carbohydrate feeding in field-caught, female horse flies (Haematopota pluvialis) (Diptera: Tabanidae)
Total glycogen, oligosaccharides and triglycerides were determined quantitatively for individual parous females of T. pluvialis in Switzerland during the entire flight seasons in 1979 and 1980. This horsefly does not synthesize net reserve material in substantial amounts, neither as fat nor as glycogen. Thus, frequent feeding on carbohydrate sources appears necessary.
