Chorion is a complex structure of protein and polysaccharide – a microscopical study in Oxya hyla hyla (Orthoptera: Acrididae) (Serville, 1831)

A. Shyam Roy, D. Ghosh

Oxya hyla hyla is a paddy field grasshopper and a major pest of rice. Here an attempt has been made to analyze and reveal the chemical composition with regard to protein and sugar moiety of chorion by microscopical techniques. From these observations using light and TE Microscopy it has come out that polysaccharide and protein were key ingredients of chorion. These components might be involved in chorion hardening and the amount of these components increased with the maturity of the chorion.
