Constant parthenogenesis proved in two heteroptera the mirid campyloneura virgula and the anthocorid calliodis maculipennis

Constant parthenogenesis proved in two heteroptera the mirid campyloneura virgula and the anthocorid calliodis maculipennis

Annales de la Societe Entomologique de France 25(4): 387-392

By breeding females isolated just at the time of imaginal moulting, constant parthenogenesis was demonstrated in the Miridae Campyloneura virgula. This parthenogenesis, which exists in Europe but not in North Africa, was previously only a hypothesis founded on the extreme scarcity of males. In the neotropical Anthocordiae Calliodis maculipennis, there are two forms differing in their mode of reproduction. One, found at Trinidad [West Indies] and very likely always insular, is constantly parthenogenetic. We obtained at the Laboratory a succession of several generations consisting of females only. The other form, always bisexual, has been found on the American continent (Mexico, Guyana). The females of this form are fecundated by a complex process of traumatic extragenital insemination, briefly described thereafter.
