  • Agabus bipustulatus secondary elytral reticulation patterns.

    PLoS ONE Alerts: New Articles

  • This species complex is known to display a pronounced individual shape variation in combination with an elytral reticulation that varies both between and within sexes, especially at higher altitudes

    PLoS ONE Alerts: New Articles

  • Individual response in secondary reticulation at high altitude is observed as widening of the longitudinally elongated secondary meshes and increased coverage of isomorphic meshes from the apex up to half of the elytral length.
