    • Abstract

       

      Eggs of Rhaphidosomatinae share with the eggs of other subfamilies, several characters common to Reduviidae. The chorion with simple follicle cells, short, highly porous collar rim, 6 micropyles and the operculum with a central highly porous conical disc are characters to distinguish the eggs of this from other reduviid subfamilies. The ultrastructural details of the chorion, the operculum, and the aero-micropylar system of the eggs ofRhaphidosoma atkinsoni, the only species represented in India, are reported.
