The pretarsal surface structures of elasmucha ferrugata acanthosomatidae heteroptera

, : The pretarsal surface structures of elasmucha ferrugata acanthosomatidae heteroptera. Zoologischer Anzeiger 205(1-2): 76-80

The pretarsal surface morphology, especially the adhesive pads of the bug family Acanthosomatidae is illustrated by scanning electron micrographs of E. ferrugata (Fabricius). Previous histological and scanning electron microscopical studies supported the view that the adhesive fluid is secreted mainly in the integumental fold between the pretarsus and the last tarsal joint. Other possible sources of adhesive fluid are the basal parts of the ungues. In Acanthosomatidae the fluid is transported passively to the underside of the adhesive pads by a system of grooves. This system differs from that in other Pentatomoidea, illustrating a different evolution of this structures within this superfamily.
