      The preliminary light microscopic and biochemical study of the haemolymph ofOxya hyla hyla records the presence of five different types of haemocytes and gives a quantiative estimation of plasma proteins along with their gel electrophoretic band patterns. The higher number of total haemocyte count in adult female compared to that of immature one may be attributed to some kind of synthesis and transport of proteins or other yolk materials during vitellogenesis. High plasma protein concentration during monsoon may be associated with the reproductive maturity of these insects. The gel electrophoretic pattern of plasma proteins reveals the constant presence of two particular bands suggesting the occurrence of lipoprotein and juvenile hormone carrier protein.
