Biochemical research on the pigments of cavernicolous insects. Generalities and fluorescent pigments



Biochemical research on the pigments of cavernicolous insects. Generalities and fluorescent pigments



Ann Speleol 19(3): 553-572



A short synopsis of insect pigments and chemical structure of these pigments is given. Cavernicolous coleoptera cannot be considered as nonpigmented. Two fluorsecent pigments have been isolated from Antrocharis querilhaci (Bathyscini). These pigments belong to the pterines and have been identified as leucopterine and xantopterine. They have also been isolated from Speouomus and Boldorla (Bathyscini) and Aphaeonops and Trechus (Trechini). Apparently pigments of the pterine type are generally present in all camicolus coleopterans.
