: Intra-uterine egg development in Aphelenchus avenae

: Intra-uterine egg development in Aphelenchus avenae 183 it has been reported only thrice (Chitwood, 1949, Hirschmann & Sasser, 1955, and Triantaphyllou, 1960). Intersexes are usually females possessing rudiments of male secondary sexual characters. Only once a case of male intersexuality has been reported by Chitwood (1949) in Meloidogyne, javanica. Triantaphyllou (1960) found that intersex of M. javanica were derived from second stage female larvae through sex reversal. During a study of the genus Tyleptus Thorne, 1939, an intersex individual was found among a large population of males and females of 1'yleptu,r striatus Heyns, 1963, from around roots of Sac-c-harasna ravemzae (L.) Murray in Aligarh, India. This worm contains female reproductive organs as well as rudiments of male sexual characters like spicules, supplements and copulatory musculature. This appears to be the first record of intersexuality in the order Dorylaimida. Dimensions: Intersex: L = 0.65 mm; a = 30; b = 4; c = 50; V = 43. Normal females: L = 0.8-1.0 mm; a = 27-42; b = 3.6-4.5; c = 63-71; V = 33-36. Normal males: L = 0.8-0.9 mm; a = 33-35; b = 4.0-4.7; c = 40-53. As evident from the measurements, the intersex has a smaller body and more posteriorly located vulva than the normal females and the length of tail is more close to that of males. When compared with the normal males (Jairajpuri, 1964), the spicules of the intersex are short and delicate, the copulatory musculature is weak and the supplements are rudimentary, consisting of an adanal pair and one (or two?) ventromedian.

Abstract

183 it has been reported only thrice (Chitwood, 1949, Hirschmann & Sasser, 1955, and Triantaphyllou, 1960). Intersexes are usually females possessing rudiments of male secondary sexual characters. Only once a case of male intersexuality has been reported by Chitwood (1949) in Meloidogyne, javanica. Triantaphyllou (1960) found that intersex of M. javanica were derived from second stage female larvae through sex reversal. During a study of the genus Tyleptus Thorne, 1939, an intersex individual was found among a large population of males and females of 1'yleptu,r striatus Heyns, 1963, from around roots of Sac-c-harasna ravemzae (L.) Murray in Aligarh, India. This worm contains female reproductive organs as well as rudiments of male sexual characters like spicules, supplements and copulatory musculature. This appears to be the first record of intersexuality in the order Dorylaimida. Dimensions: Intersex: L = 0.65 mm; a = 30; b = 4; c = 50; V = 43. Normal females: L = 0.8-1.0 mm; a = 27-42; b = 3.6-4.5; c = 63-71; V = 33-36. Normal males: L = 0.8-0.9 mm; a = 33-35; b = 4.0-4.7; c = 40-53.
