EMBRYOGENESIS OF CALLIPHORA ERYTHRO- CEPHALA MEIGEN. II. GLYCOGEN PATTERN by L. G. VAN DER STARRE-VAN DER MOLEN (Zoological Laboratory, University of Leiden, The Netherlands) I. INTRODUCTION During oogenesis, many reserve substances such as proteins, lipids, and carbohydrates are stored in the yolk of insect eggs. The storage of proteins and lipids begins early in oogenesis. Glycogen is usually stored late in oogenesis (BONHAG, 1958; SESHA- CHAR & BAGGA, 1963; ANDERSON & LYFORD, 1965; ENGELS & BIER, 1967; HOPKINS & KING, 1968; MENG, 1968; ENGELS, 1971), and Calli- phora follows this general pattern (pers. comm. DE PRIESTER). As in most other animals, glycogen is one of the principal carbohydrate reserve substances (GILMOUR, 1965; CHEFURKA, 1965). The stored glycogen probably plays an important part in embryogenesis, as in many vertebrates (LEE, 1951; MooG & THOMAS, 1957; WALDVOGEL, 1965; SASSE, 1968; RUGGERI, 1969; VAN GANSEN & SCHRAM, 1969). Few studies have been done on the occurrence of glycogen during embryogenesis of insects. MOULINIER (1956, 1957) reports the presence of and changes in glycogen during the diapause of Bombyx. Glycogen was found in Tenebrio embryos by LUDWIG & RAMAZOTTO (1965) and in Anthonomus by NETTLES & BETZ (1965). HILL (1945) studied changes
