Bijdrage tot de vergelijkende morphologie der Thysanoptera

J. Doeksen

Research output: Thesisinternal PhD, WU


The morphology of a wide range of Thysanoptera, including both primitive and highly specialised species, was described.

It proved possible to find lines of development in the great diversity of forms and the homology of specialized structures such as mouth parts and wing veins could be ascertained.

Structural details of the external sex organs and legs, partly overlooked by earlier workers, were described and their importance made clear.

From the morphological studies, a slightly altered taxonomic system was devised.
