Exoskeleton and muscular morphology of the larval thorax of manduca sexta lepidoptera sphingidae






Annals of the Entomological Society of America 75(3): 313-322

Exoskeleton and muscular morphology of the larval thorax of manduca sexta lepidoptera sphingidae

The thoracic exoskeleton and musculature of the 5th instar of M. sexta L. were described using generally accepted morphological terminology. The origins and insertions of the muscles were derived from study of the exoskeleton. Considerably more similarities between the thoracic exoskeleton and musculature of larval Lepidoptera and the thorax of a generalized insect were revealed than had previously been recognized.
