File: 166 KB, 440x399, Duliticola.gif [View same] [iqdb] [saucenao] [google] [report]

Looks like an amblypygid, or whip spider. I might as well dump what I have of insects and copy/paste a bit of info.

Females of beetle genus Duliticola are apparently neotenic, staying in larval form for all their lives while males mature into tiny adult insects, a bit more than one tenth the size of the female. The female is known for its peculiar appearance with plates on her back that makes her look similar to a trilobite. Some species also feature a light-emitting organ, perhaps to attract males, as with fireflies.

File: 52 KB, 400x300, Diploptera punctata.jpg [View same] [iqdb] [saucenao] [google] [report]

Very few insects are truly viviparous, members of genus Diploptera being the only example in cockroaches. The eggs feed off of "milk" internally secreted from the mother, a protein-rich liquid not unlike mammalian milk.

File: 43 KB, 419x410, strepsipteran eye.jpg [View same] [iqdb] [saucenao] [google] [report]

More well-known for the diseases they carry, tsetse fly is another insect that bears young live. They likewise have a specialized "milk" gland with which to feed their eggs.

An even rarer form of "vivipary" is shown by Strepsipterans and gall midges. The former has its article on Bogleech, so I'll just direct you there. I didn't even know the female didn't have a genital pore. I just thought the male didn't use them during entry.


Gall midges are generally the same with a few main differences: One, the mother is sometimes a fellow larva - many species are paedogenetic, that is, the infantile forms are fertile. Second, the larvae eat their mother alive (in addition to feeding on her tissues first, as with Strepsipterans. The future of the eggs is even determined by the hemolymph they are swimming in! ) before escaping. A number of different larvae can be produced from this paedogenetic larva, one kind develops into adult females, one is identical to her mother, one remains as a larva but produces only males, and a fourth type either produces males or the initial fertile larvae. Unfortunately, the last difference is lack of the neck penetration featured in Strepsipterans, hence why the larvae eat their mother - there's no conveniently located neck hole drilled by their father in their case.

File: 24 KB, 416x500, Ptinus clavipes.jpg [View same] [iqdb] [saucenao] [google] [report]

Parthenogenesis in aphids is well-known, but there's a rarer variant of it seen in certain insects. Called gynogenesis, the sperm is required for reproduction in this case, but only to "activate" the egg - no genetic material from the sperm is used (plants also have a similar mode of reproduction. A single species reproduces entirely using genetic material of sperm only. ) An example is the all-female Ptinus clavipes mobilis, which needs to mate with a P. clavipes male to reproduce.

File: 51 KB, 500x428, Mastotermes darwiniensis.jpg [View same] [iqdb] [saucenao] [google] [report]

Termites of genus Mastotermes are amongst the closest to cockroaches (from which termites are derived from ) and even lack workers in their colonies. The tasks to be done by workers are instead accomplished by older nymphs.

On the other side of the cockroach/termite boundary there is Cryptocercus, the parents caring for their offspring until death. I should also note that the male cockroach has a pheromone gland on his back that the female licks during mating, since that sounds hot.

Relative of the ever-popular Drosophila melanogaster, D. bifurca has the dubious honor of having the largest sperm cells known, up to 5.8cm and nearly 20 times the male's body length. Pictured is such a fly with his testicles uncoiled around him.

The female's reproductive tract is just slightly larger than the behemoth sperm, and after copulation she is almost entirely filled with it. Males produce very few sperm cells for obvious reasons.

Burying beetles are rare in that they too show parental care, even regurgitating meals to their young after their eggs have hatched. Single males can release a pheromone to pair up with a female, but if a paired male tries that, the female will dispense the necessary punishment!

Now this is interesting. I have linked to orbweaver silk socks before, but neurofibers?

The Tasmanian cave spider is also interesting. To protect its eggs from bacterial attack, it has a two-layered web around the egg case where the first layer is suspended within the second, a "thermos-like" structure which may protect the eggs from temperature changes and possible bacterial attack. The web also somehow resists bacterial and fungal attack (maybe a novel antibiotic can be gotten out of it! ) The spiders live extremely long (common for cave animals), apparently lasting decades, and the eggs likewise take large amounts of time (8-10 months) to hatch.

Well, I'm exhausted, so have a nice day!

I thought Masamune's antennae were an ovipositor for a moment. Compared with Muramasa's huge pedipalps (which are usually seen in males, females have smaller ones), that would actually make some sort of twisted sense.
