Spermatophores of some acaroid mites astigmata acarina


Spermatophores of some acaroid mites astigmata acarina



International Journal of Insect Morphology and Embryology 6(5-6): 231-238



DOI: 10.1016/0020-7322(77)90018-6

All species of the genera Acarus and Lardoglyphus and Austroglycyphagus geniculatus produce spermatophores which are directly transferred by inserting an aedeagus into the female copulatory passage. The final shape of the spermatophore, as it appears in the receptaculum seminis, is defined by the shape of the sclerotized bell-shaped structure leading into the receptaculum. This form appears specific at the generic level. One mating results in the formation of 1 spermatophore, so that the number of matings accomplished by the female can be deduced by microscopic examination.
