Abstract

The structure of the Forcipomyia whitcombe (Diptera: Ceratopogonidae) ovary was investigated. Some specimens were processed for light microscopy (LM) using routine histological technique and stained with H & E. Others were processed for scanning electron microscopy (SEM); dehydrated in acetone, dried in a critical point dryer (CPD). Results showed that these insects possess paired ovaries.
