Abstract

PATTERN OF EGG SHELL MORPHOLOGY IN THAMNOCEPHALIDS AND STREPTOCEPHALIDS OF THE NEW WORLD (ANOSTRACA) BY GRAZIELLA MURA Department of Animal and Human Biology, University of Rome La Sapienza, Italy. RIASSUNTO Nel presente lavoro viene descritta al SEM la morfologia dell'uovo per le specie dei generi Dendrocephalus (9), Thamnocephalus (3) e Streplocephalus (10), sino ad oggi identificate nel Nuovo Mondo. I risultati di questo studio, analizzati alla luce di precedenti osservazioni condotte su altri generi e specie di Crostacei Anostraci, sembrano confermare quanto già evidenziato precedentemente (Brendonck et al., 1990; Mura, 1986, 1991) circa la validità di questo carattere dal punto di vista tassonomico e sottolineano la necessità di una indagine più estesa al riguardo.
