Distribution of constitutive heterochromatin in two species of triatomines: Triatoma lenti Sherlock and Serafim (1967) and Triatoma sherlocki Papa, Jurberg, Carcavallo, Cerqueira & Barata (2002)
(Infection, Genetics and Evolution, 2013-01-01) [Artigo]
Triatoma lenti and Triatoma sherlocki are hemipterans that belong to the brasiliensis subcomplex. In triatomines, the constitutive heterochromatin pattern is species-specific and allows, in many cases, for the grouping of ...
Karyotype of Triatoma melanocephala Neiva and Pinto (1923). Does this species fit in the Brasiliensis subcomplex?
(Infection, Genetics and Evolution, 2012-12-01) [Artigo]
Triatoma melanocephala is a rare species of Hemiptera that belongs to the Brasiliensis subcomplex. This subcomplex is composed of cryptic species, and the basic number of chromosomes for triatomines of this subcomplex is ...
Spermatogenesis in Triatoma williami Galvao, Souza and Lima (1965) (Hemiptera, Triatominae)
(Invertebrate Reproduction & Development, 2014-04-03) [Artigo]
Cytogenetics has proven to be an important tool in the study of triatomine taxonomy. Triatoma williami is a triatomine that has been classified within the Matogrossensis subcomplex. In this study, the cytogenetic technique ...
Heteropyknotic filament in spermatids of Triatoma melanocephala and T. vitticeps (Hemiptera, Triatominae)
(Invertebrate Reproduction & Development, 2014-01-01) [Artigo]
The species Triatoma melanocephala and T. vitticeps are vectors of Chagas disease in Brazil. An analysis of the number of chromosomes has led to the proposal of the exclusion of both these species and T. tibiamaculata from ...
Chromosomal characteristics and distribution of constitutive heterochromatin in the Matogrossensis and Rubrovaria subcomplexes
(Infection Genetics And Evolution, 2015-07-01) [Artigo]
Since 1966 the triatomines were grouped in complexes and specific subcomplexes. Although the complex and subcomplexes not have taxonomic importance, should be monophyletic groups and cytogenetic tools have proved to be of ...
