The average number of ovarioles per ovary is 24 while in the other investigated species the number of ovarioles per ovary is However, when the clutch size was manipulated, small females protecting large clutches lost significantly more eggs than large females guarding small clutches or females in the control groups guarding clutches of grisae size.

The front corners of the pronotum show a more pronounced tooth. Oxford University Press is a department of the University of Oxford. Elasmucha grisea Linnaeus, References for this taxon found elasmuhca the Conservation Evidence Library.

Predation appears to limit the clutch size in E. In other projects Wikimedia Commons Wikispecies. Description Elasmucha grisea Parent bugArnhem, the Netherlands – 3. Lateral oviducts are elongated and the ovarioles are arranged in a pennate pattern.

A comparative analysis of the ovary structure during the life cycle, particularly the presence of atresive ovarian follicles in the ovarioles of egg- and nymph guarding females, as well as the shape and structure of the apical part of the tropharium all support the hypothesis of cooperation between females in E.

Differentiation of the ovarioles and ovarian follicles is synchronised thus enabling simultaneous oviposition. The offspring of different females make contact with each other and form mixed groups. The common name of Elasmucha grisea comes from the relatively rare insect behaviour of prolonged caring for eggs and juveniles, exhibited by females of this species.
