The sex-ratio and behavioural mating peculiarities of Tetraneura nigriabdominalis have been investigated. A morphological study by SEM revealed the developmental stages of sex-attractant pheromone glands on the hind tibiae of females, the morphology of the chemiosensilla on the male antennae, and peculiar microsculptures on abdominal sternites which may be interpreted as an anchorage system favouring copulation.

Abstract

The sex-ratio and behavioural mating peculiarities of Tetraneura nigriabdominalis have been investigated. A morphological study by SEM revealed the developmental stages of sex-attractant pheromone glands on the hind tibiae of females, the morphology of the chemiosensilla on the male antennae, and peculiar microsculptures on abdominal sternites which may be interpreted as an anchorage system favouring copulation.
