Taramalı Elektron Mikroskobunda (SEM) Cassida prasina Illiger, 1798 (Coleoptera: Chrysomelidae: Cassidinae) 'nın Aedeagus Yapısı
Aedeagus Structure of Cassida prasina Illiger, 1798 (Coleoptera: Chrysomelidae: Cassidinae) in Scanning Electrone Microscope (SEM)

Neslihan BAL [1] , Hüseyin ÖZDİKMEN [2]


Cassida Linnaeus, 1758 (Coleoptera: Chrysomelidae: Cassidinae) cinsi içerisinde genel olarak erkek genitalinin ayırt edici olmadığı, spermatekanın ise kısmen ayırt edici olduğu kabul edilmektedir. Bununla birlikte şimdiye kadar yapılan genital çalışmalarının sadece stereo mikroskoba dayalı olduğu görülmektedir. Genital yapıların ince yapısı birkaç çalışma dışında çalışılmamıştır. İnce yapı çalışmalarının verimli olup olmadığını ortaya koymak amacıyla bu çalışmada Türkiye’den 2001 ve 2003 yıllarında Düzce ve Karabük illerinden toplanan toplam iki Cassida prasina Illiger, 1798 örneğine ait erkek genital yapısı SEM’de ilk kez incelenmiştir. Bu sayede yeni ayırt edici karakterler elde edilmiş ve diğer bir alt cinsteki daha önce çalışmış türlerden ayırt edici olduğu ortaya konulmuştur. Erkek genitalinin hem SEM hem de stereo mikroskop fotoğrafları da çalışma içerisinde sunulmuştur.

It is accepted that male genitalia are not diagnostic and spermathecae are partly diagnostic within the genus Cassida Linnaeus, 1758 (Coleoptera: Chrysomelidae: Cassidinae). However, studies on genitalia have been based on only stereo microscope up to now. Ultra-structures of genitalia have never been studied except for a few works. The aim of this study was to determine whether the ultrastructural works are efficient or not. In the present work, male genitalia from two specimens of Cassida prasina Illiger, 1798 collected from Düzce and Karabük provinces in 2001 and 2003, which have been examined by electron microscope for the first time. New diagnostic characters were obtained and it revealed that it was diagnostic from the previously worked species in others subgenus. Photos of aedeagus in both SEM and stereo microscope are also given in the text.
