Abstract

Abstract Crowding stimulates alatae production by the apterous morph of Megoura viciae, but it has no effect on the volume and ultrastructure of the maternal corpus allatum. In adult apterae the corpus allatum appears to be inactive. It is therefore considered that the maternal corpus allatum is not involved in the prenatal control of alary polymorphism in this aphid.
