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-F3: Orientation of the pupae for observation under a stereo microscope: (A) ventral view (ventral side facing up), (B) dorsal view (dorsal side facing up), and (C) anterior view (head facing up).

Mentions: Ventral view (Fig. 3A): The pupae were placed with the polypneustic lobes pointing down. Viewed from above, this position showed the ventral surface with wings, proboscis, legs, and eyes all visible.Fig. 3.
