Evaluation of Standard Loose Plastic Packaging for the Management of Rhyzopertha dominica (F.) (Coleoptera: Bostrichidae) and Tribolium castaneum (Herbst) (Coleoptera: Tenebriondiae). The elytra and hindwings were collected from 40 beetles of Tribolium castanaeum and T. confusum in the laboratory and fixed in 70% alcohol. PubMed Central  Noh, M. Y., Muthukrishnan, S., Kramer, K. J., & Arakan, Y. Xiang, J., Du, J., & Zhen, C. (2016). The elytra of Coleoptera have an ingenious structure with superhydrophobic characteristics, a structural coloration and anti-adhesion characteristics (Pfau & Honomichl, 1979; Sun & Bhushan, 2012). Part of Springer Nature. Semi-thin sections were made with glass knife by Richert supernova ultratome and were stained by toluidine blue, then were examined under a light microscope. Semithin cross section on the forewing of T. castanaeum and T. confusum shows that the height and width of the hemolymph space was extremely variable (Fig. Entomologie Beute, 22, 191–204. PubMed  By A. Sokoloff, T. L. Hayes, R. F. W. Pease, M. Ackermann. Tribolium castaneum: Morphology of "Aureate" Revealed by the Scanning Electron Microscope. (2014). title = "Morphology of Tribolium castaneum male genitalia and its possible role in sperm competition and cryptic female choice". The two main chemical components of the T. confusum hindwing were chitin and protein from FITR spectrum, as shown in (Fig. The external element of the sensillum covers the gland opening or located next to it. Functional value of elytra under various stresses in the red flour beetle, Tribolium castaneum.

IR absorbance spectra of the wings of a, c Tribolium castanaeum—a elytron, c hindwing; b, d Tribolium confusum—b elytron, d hindwing. Jagadeesan R, Collins PJ, Daglish GJ, Ebert PR, Schlipalius DI. They play a vital role like a composite material with a high resistance to bending and pressure, and to protect the hindwings and the body, and produce significant aerodynamic forces in those beetles which fly with their elytra expanded laterally. Front Neuroendocrinol. Coleoptera is the largest order in the insect group and the most successful animal on earth (Nature Communications 9(205):1–11, 2018). 17 May 2019. Please enable it to take advantage of the complete set of features! The dermal gland present on the elytra secretes a substance which may play an important role in hydrophobic characteristics. The height of the spikes of the hindwings was remarkable by hydrogen-bonded O–H and N–H amide stretching vibration and was correlated to the thickness of the wing. CAS  Results showed that the thickness of the lateral edge, the middle part, and the inner edge of T. castanaeum was 54.54 μm, 27.0 μm, and 38 μm, respectively (Table 1). Walking Responses of Tribolium castaneum (Coleoptera: Tenebrionidae) to Its Aggregation Pheromone and Odors of Wheat Infestations. The elytra play an important role in protecting the delicate hindwings and the dorsal surface of the abdomen. Journal of Bionic Engineering, 7, 134–141.

Journal of Chemical Ecology, 7(2), 467–482. The height of the hemolymph space lateral edge, the middle part, and the inner edge was 18.75 μm, 4.55 μm, and 12.5 μm, respectively (Fig. The elytra of both species bear conspicuous field of trichoid sensilla from dorsal side and numerous gland openings with a pit.
