Abstract:There were many kinds of scales located on adult Loxostege sticticalis, and these scales were vital for the long-distance migration and adaption to variable complex habitats. These scales could be classified into two categories by the structural characters: lamella and piliform. The lamellar scales were ovate or blade-like in cross section, such as serrated scales, spatulate scales, abdominal scale tufts and hook-shaped scales forming the thorax lock. Piliform scales were round in cross section, such as hairs along inner margin of hindwing and ventroposterior brush. The analysis of ultrastructure showed that the scale was consisted of several basic structures including longitudinal ridges, cross ribs, windows, lumen and mastoid process. All of these scales fitted into a socket, and involved some specific structures such as the particular hook bending tip of the hook-shaped scales, the mastoid process of abdominal scale tufts, and windows in hairs along inner margin of hindwing and ventroposterior brush. These scales developing from the epidermal cells born the various biological functions on adult body of L. sticticalis. In conclusion, the examination of scale ultrastructure may provide theoretical basis for the morphological, behavioral and evolutionary research.
