Describing compartmentalization in the Inner hind wings of three local populations of the coconut leaf beetle, Plesispa reichei

This study was conducted to describe compartmentalization in the inner wings of three local populations of two-colored coconut leaf beetle, Plesispa reichei. Modularity and Integration Analysis (MINT) tested 5 a priori models of variational modularity in multidimensional data. Using γ* (Gamma*) test for goodness of fit (GoF) statistics comparing the observed and expected covariance matrices show that the inner wing is composed of 3 mutually exclusive and integrated developmental modules. One of the three populations however differ not only between the left and right wing but also based on the priority models of compartmentalization. While variations between populations were observed, results still confirm the idea that the modules observed in the wings are morphological units with clear spatial boundaries and are tightly integrated.
