  • Title
    Morphometric geometric study of wing shape in Culex quinquefasciatus Say (Diptera: Culicidae) from Tamil Nadu, India
    Journal Article
    The morphometric geometric study was carried out in 10 males and 10 females of Culex quinquefasciatus. There are 23 landmarks corresponding to points at which wing veins either branch or intersect the margin of the wing. Relative warp analysis has been proved to be very efficient in distinguishing the variation of shape in male and female wings. The multivariate analysis of co-variance (MANCOVA) showed a clear separation of the male and female wings.
