Scanning electron microscopic studies on cibarium of Aedes albopictus (Skuse) & Aedes aegypti (Linnaeus)

Author(s): Jagbir Singh Kirti, Navneet Kaur, Simarjit Kaur
Abstract: Studies on cibarium of two species: Aedes albopictus (Skuse) and Aedes aegypti (Linnaeus) have been conducted using Scanning Electron Microscope (SEM) to explore additional taxonomic attributes. Many new taxonomic characters i.e. width and characteristics of lateral flanges, number and arrangement of cibarial sense organs or papillae viz. palatal papillae, larger dorsal papillae, smaller dorsal papillae, and ventral papillae have come to light.
