Correlation between size of body parts (particularly mandibles) and wet body weight in aquatic insects



Correlation between size of body parts (particularly mandibles) and wet body weight in aquatic insects



Japanese Journal of Limnology, 532: 151-156



The mandible shapes of aquatic insects were studied, and correlations between the wet body weight and the size of mandibles and other parts of 6 orders (Ephemeroptera, Plecoptera, Hemiptera, Trichoptera, Coleoptera and Diptera) and 15 families commonly found in the Takami and Shigou Rivers in Higashiyoshino, Nara Prefecture, Japan, were analysed. Highly significant correlations between the size of the mandible and wet body weight of insects were obtained in all families studied.
