SOTO, Alberto; OLIVEIRA, Hamilton G  and  BACCA, Tito. MORPHOLOGY AND HISTOLOGY OF THE REPRODUCTIVE SYSTEM OF Supputius cincticeps (HEMIPTERA: HETEROPTERA: PENTATOMIDAE). rev.udcaactual.divulg.cient. [online]. 2012, vol.15, n.1, pp.117-123. ISSN 0123-4226.

Insect pests represent the most remarkable problems in forest plantations. This scenario is present mainly in monocultures of the genus Eucalyptus, due to significant damage that occurs throughout the growing season. Supputius cincticeps might be used biological control agent of eucalyptus defoliating larvae. The aim of this work was to study the morphology and histology of the reproductive organs of S. cincticeps to contribute to the knowledge of their reproduction to be applied in mass rearing programs. Ovaries and testicles of the predator were extracted and sectioned by using a microtome up to obtain tissue sections of 5mm which were described and recorded photographically.

Keywords : Predator; genitalia; male; female; stink bug.
