Research Center for Advanced Materials Science (RCAMS), King Khalid University, P.O. Box 9004, Abha 61413, Saudi Arabia.

Species belonging to genus, Fabricius of the subfamily Plusiinae which are polyphagous in nature and pest of vegetables, foods, legumes, fodder, fruits, ornamental plants and cotton crops. Samples were collected from different localities of district Bahawalpur. For collection, comprehensive and comparative surveys were carried out during 2017-18 on taxonomic account of species of the genus Fabricius and resulted identified one species (Fabricius) first time from Pakistan.

Associative visual learning, color discrimination, and chromatic adaptation in the harnessed honeybee Apis mellifera L.

J Comp Physiol A Neuroethol Sens Neural Behav Physiol 2006 Jul 20;192(7):691-700. Epub 2006 Jan 20.

Department of Biological Sciences, Graduate School of Science, The University of Tokyo, 113-0033 Bunkyo-ku, Tokyo, Japan.

We studied associative visual learning in harnessed honeybees trained with monochromatic lights associated with a reward of sucrose solution delivered to the antennae and proboscis, to elicit the proboscis extension reflex (PER). We demonstrated five properties of visual learning under these conditions. First, antennae deprivation significantly increased visual acquisition, suggesting that sensory input from the antennae interferes with visual learning. Read More

Analysis of period circadian expression in the Drosophila head by in situ hybridization.

J Neurogenet 1997 Nov;11(3-4):255-63

Dépt. de Biologie Moléculaire, Institut Pasteur, Paris, France.

The expression of the period (per) gene of Drosophila melanogaster has been studied by in situ hybridization in the adult's head, where it is required for the fly to exhibit behavioral circadian rhythms. We have used non-radioactive in situ hybridization to obtain a high sensitivity and specificity on head sections, with single cell resolution. Consistent with previous per protein- or per reporter gene-expression, per-expressing cells were detected in the optic lobes and the central brain, as well as in the head sensory organs: eyes, ocelli, maxillary palps and proboscis.

Larval morphology of the Nemertean Carcinonemertes epialti (Nemertea: Hoplonemertea).

J Morphol 1981 Jul;169(1):61-70

Department of Zoology, University of Washington, Seattle, Washington 98195 and Friday Harbor Laboratories, Friday Harbor, Washington 98250.

The morphology of the newly hatched larva of Carcinonemertes epialti Coe has been examined by light and electron microscopy. The newly hatched larva is covered with cilia and measures about 110 μm in length. Four types of epidermal cells are recognizable: (1) Multiciliated cells, (2) vacuolated cells, (3) mucous cells, and (4) "knob cells". Read More
