Study on the external morphology of the eggs of maize borer, chilo partellus (swinhoe)

D.S. Deep and H.S. Rose

The eggs of Chilo partellus (Swinhoe), commonly known as maize borer showed the presence of certain morphological features after thorough analysis through scanning Electron Microscopy (SEM), which can be used in taxonomic investigation along with the other aspect adopt by a taxonomist for accurate identification and updation of the information about the taxa. Principally, the shape and chorionic structures vary greatly among the higher taxonomic groups due to the presence of key structures on the egg chorion, also known as sutures and ridges. In the presently studied species, besides the egg chorion texture, the micropylar end was surrounded by nine rosettes like primary cells.
