Abstract:There is an important lack of knowledge regarding the mechanisms and morphology of the structures involved in the feeding process of the bee‐mimicking eristaline flower fly species (Diptera: Syrphidae). In order to look more deeply into their larval feeding biology, a morphological study of the head skeleton and the external feeding structures of the three larval instars of Eristalis tenax (L.) and Eristalinus aeneus (Scopoli), important pollinators and bioindicators of water quality, was carried out, using sc…
scite is a Brooklyn-based startup that helps researchers better discover and evaluate scientific articles through Smart Citations–citations that display the context of the citation and describe whether the article provides supporting or contrasting evidence. scite is used by researchers from dozens of countries and is funded in part by the National Science Foundation and the National Institute of Drug Abuse of the National Institutes of Health.
