Morphology of the eggs of the Notodontidae (Lepidoptera)of the fauna of the USSR.

Authors:

Abstract

Data are presented on the egg structure in 26 species of the Notodontidae of the USSR fauna, studied by scanning electron microscopy. Characteristic of the family on the egg structure is given basing on a study of 85 species of 44 genera from the USSR; all the studied species are divided into 3 groups. 48 original microphotographs are presented

... Lymantriidae, analogously Notodontidae, Arctiidae and .Brahmaeidae have micropylar area located at tlle apical part of the agg. The most of Notodontid moths do not have clear boundary between the cells of the micropylar area and the rest egg surface (DoLINSKAYA, 1987 a, b; 1989) whereas Vapourer moths have the various kinds of boundary. In some species (L. ...

Eggs of 11 species belonging to 7 genera of Lymantn'idae were examined with the use of the scanning electron microscopy. The descriptions and the comparative morphological analysis are provided for all these species. The evaluation of significance of some morphological characters is given and the diagnostic characters for some species are chosen. Many species were found out to be recognizable from the complex characters they share with other genera. A preliminary characteristics of the family Lymantriidae is given basing on the egg characters. Zusammenfassung: Die aussere Morphologie der Eiem von 11 Arten aus 7 Gattungen (familie Lymantriidae) ist auf Grund der Untersuchung des materials aus Primorje (Russland) beschrieben. Die vergleichendmorphologische Analyse der Eiemskulptur der Arten und Gattungen ist durchgefuhrt. Die diagnostishe Merkmale sind rur einigen Arten gegeben. Die Arten sind mit verschiedenen Kombinationen der derselben Mermalen unterscheidet. Die familie "Lymantn'idae ist auf Grund der Eirnmerkmale characterisiert. Resume: Des oeufs de 11 es¢ces de Lynzantn'idae appartenant a 7 genres ont ete etudies au moyen d'un microscope electronique scanneur. L'analyse de la morphologie comparative des oeufs etudies a ete faite. L'appreciation d'lUle valeur taxinomique des caracteres morphologiques principaux est donnee; des caracteres diagnostiques des oeufs pour certaines es¢ces sont etablis. n apparalt que des oeufs de nombreuses especes peuvent etre identifies d'apres un ensemble de caracteres dont la combinaison est propre a I'es¢ce. Une caracteristique preliminaire de la famille des Lymantriidae d'apres leurs oeufs est proposee.

On the basis of comparative-morphological analysis of 43 genera and 92 species of Palaearctic Notodontidae, as well as the study of the eggs of outgroup species, complexes of characters that are diagnostic, taxonomic or phylogenetic are singled out. It is shown that the egg characteristics are of great taxonomic value at species and generic levels. Some characters are useful for grouping genera. In general, a complex of characters should be used, because different species or genera often share the same characters. Possible apomorphic and plesiomorphic states of the different characters are discussed in relation to the different taxa. The results of this study are discussed with reference to recently published classifications of Notodontidae. As a result of the studies, the keys for identification to the eggs of 43 genera and 92 species of notodontid moths from the Palaearctic region are presented. Reliable diagnostic characters that do not disappear with the injury of eggs or with eggs preserved in alcohol were used. Characters including egg shape, egg and chorion colour, the shape of gnawed holes in eggs when caterpillars hatched, chorionic sculpture, the type of oviposition, foodplants, and geographic distribution of the genera and species were applied. Occasionally, characters that are typical for live eggs, which vary during development, were used. These are characters of egg colour and pattern. The keys are illustrated with photographs made using a digital camera and a scanning electron microscope.

Eggs of2 species ofSaturniidae, 1 species ofBrahmaeidae and 2 species ofSphingidae were examined with the application of the scanning electron microscopy. In addition are considered the egg features of 10 species of Sphingidae. All the examined species Sphingidae are divided in 3 groups. The descriptions and the comparative morphological analysis is provided for all studied taxa. The evaluation of significans of some morphological characters is given and the diagnostic characters for genera and species are included.

Die au~ere Morphologie der Eiem von 2 Satumiidae-Arten, einem Brahmaeidae-Art und 2 Sphingidae-Arten ist auf Grund der Untersuchung des Materials aus Primorje (Ru~land) beschrieben. Diese Angaben sind mit Eiern-Merkmale von 10 Sphingidae-Arten aus derselben Gebiet erganzt. Vergleichendmorphologische Analyse der Eiemskulptur der untersuchten Arten ist hinzufligt. Die Bedeutung der untersuchten morphologischen Merkmale fur Diagnose der ist manchen Arten und Gattungen sind begrundet und bewertet. i\lle untersuchten Arten sind der Skulptur des Exochorions nach in 3 Gruppe geteilt. Die Merkmale said eingefuhrt, die fliralle untersuchte Familien gemeinsam sind.

Presented, with comments, are 131 plates of illustrations of geometrid eggs representing five subfamilies of the Geometridae: one species of Oenochrominae, 72 species of Ennominae, four species of Geometrinae, nine species of Sterrhinae, and 45 species of Larentiinae. The illustrations are useful as identification aids, in demonstrating relationships between species, and in assessing the validity of species groupings based on taxonomic criteria from other life stages.
