Near Infrared Imaging As a Method of Studying Tsetse Fly (Diptera: Glossinidae) Pupal Development.

Moran ZR, Parker AG - J. Insect Sci. (2016)

Bottom Line: Various wavelengths of NIR light from 880 to 1060 nm were compared to study the development of tsetse fly pupae from larviposition to emergence, using time-lapse videos and photographs.In addition, it presents a new methodology for studying the pupal stage of many coarctate insects for many applications.NIR imaging permits observation of living pupae, allowing the entire development process to be observed without disruption.

iew047-F1: Transformation of a third instar Glossina palpalis gambiensis larva into a puparium over the first 24 h after larviposition.

Mentions: Stage I. The third instar puparium. This stage lasts for the first 24 h after larvipostion. The larva remains motile for ∼20 min after larviposition, allowing it to burrow into the soil. The larva then becomes smooth and rounded as the cuticle hardens, forming what will become the puparium and darkens as it sclerotizes. Figure 1 shows a larva from the Glossina palpalis gambiensis Vanderplank (Diptera: Glossinidae) colony in Seibersdorf, Austria, which sclerotizes and turns black over the course of 24 h. The external appearance then remains the same until the adult fly emerges.Fig. 1.
