Larinus onopordi (Devedikeni iekbaşı Hortumlu Bceği) [Eng. Globe Thistle Capitulum Weevil]

Today, i would like to dedicate this well camouflaged pair of weevil in love to one of my dearest friends on TN, Jusni Nasirun to say him welcome back! Hope you can like this MF!

I wish all a happy and healthy new week!
Cheers,

*****************************


Fitofaj (bitkiyiyen) bcekler yeryz biyoeşitliliğinin byk bir kısmını temsil ederler. Bu sıradışı eştliliği aiklamaya alışan hipotezlerin oğu, bunu kk boyutlarına, ok eşitli mikrohabitatlarda zelleşmelerine, kısa nesil verme srelerine, yeni kaynaklara aık olma ve konak bitki değiştirebilme yeteneklerine dayandırmaktadır. Curculionoidea (Ordo: Coleoptera, Kınkanatlılar) ierisindeki eşitliliği aıklamada bir anahtar nokta olarak, bitki yapısı ierisinde yer alan bir yumutlama alanının oluşturulmasında rostrum (hortum)un kullanımıdır. Curculionoid dişilerinde uzun bir rostrumun gelişmiş olması, nceden ergin sahfalar iin besin kaynağı dahi olmayan bitki kısımlarında yumurtlama alanlarının oluşturulmasıyla, yeni ve uyumlu bir blgenin istilasına izin verir. Konak seiminin evrimi ve trleşme işlemini nasıl etkileyebileceği, bu eşitliliği anlama aısından nemlidir. Konak ırklarının şekillenmesi konusuna nemli derecede dikkat harcanmakta ve genellikle de simpatrik dağılışlı konak sapmaları zerine yoğunlaşılmaktadır.

Yaklaşık 180 kadar trden ibaret olan Hortumlu bcek cinsi Larinus Palearktik blgede, yaklaşık 140 kadar tr ile temsil edilir. 100 kadar tr ile Akdeniz havzasındaki en zengin tr eşitliliğine sahip cinstir. Larinus onopordi nin kuzeydoğu Anadoludaki esas konağı Echinops sphaerocephalusdir, ancak nadir olarak neslini tamamlamak iin Echinops orientalis'i de tercih eder. Kışlayan erginleri Mayıs ortasından itibaren konak bitkilerle ilişkili olarak grlr. Yapraklar zerinde birka gn beslendikten sonar, iftleşirler ve iekbaşı zerinde hortumlarını kullanarak yumurtlama deliği kazır ve yumurtalarını bırakırlar. Erginler ayrıca iekbaşı altındaki sap kısmına, dikey delikler aarak da zarar verirler. Erginlerin aktivite sresi yaklaşık 44 gnde tamamlanır. Ergin populasyonu Mayısın son haftasında pik seviyesine ulaşır. iftleşme aktivitesi sresi, neredeyse ergin aktivitesi sresi kadar olup yaklaşık 37 gndr. Yumurtaların bırakılmasından sonra dişiler yumurtalar zerine yeşil bir sıvı bırakırlar, bu sıvı kısa srede kurur, sertleşir ve siyah bir renk alır. Yumurtalar yzeysel yumurtlanır, o nedenle bu kuruyan salgı aıldığı takdirde yumurtaları grmek olasıdır. Yumurta halinde kalma sresi 33 gndr. iekbaşı iinde yumurtadan ıkma ve larvaların beslenmesi, gelişmeye devam etmesi Eyll ortalarına kadardır. Larval dnem yaklaşık 79 gndr. Temmuzun nc haftasından itibaren iekbaşında pupalar grlr. Bir iekbaşında birden fazla larva veya pupa olursa, bu iekbaşı anormal şekilli olur. Pupa sresi 51 gndr. Yeni nesil ergin safhaya ulaşınca, iekbaşında 7-10 gn kadar beklerler ve daha sonra, taş altı gibi uygun hipernasyon yeri bulmak iin buradan ıkarlar. Bu tre dahil hortumlu bcekler, taş altında gizlenmek iin 1-3 biraraya gelme şeklinde bir davranış sergilerler. Bu bağlamda L. onopordi yilda 1 nesil verir.

*****************************

Phytophagous insects represent a major part of worlds biodiversity. Most hypotheses explaining this extraordinary diversity refer to small body size, specialization on many different microhabitats, short generation time, ability to open up new resources and host plant shifting. Use of the rostrum for excavating an oviposition site in a plant structure can be seen clearly as a key point in explaining diversity within Curculionoidea (Order: Coleoptera). The development of a long rostrum in females of Curculionoidea allowed invasion of a new adaptive zone through excavation of oviposition sites in plant parts otherwise not previously available as food sources for immature stages. The evolution of host choice and knowledge of how this might affect the speciation process is important for an understanding of this diversity. Considerable attention has been paid to the formation of host races, generally concentrating on host shifts occurring in sympatry.

The weewil genus Larinus comprising ca. 180 species is represented by approximately 140 species in the Palaearctic. Larinus is species-richest in the Mediterranean where about 100 species occur. The main host plant of Larinus onopordi is E. sphaerocephalus (Great globe thistle) in Northeast Anatolia, but rarely prefers E. orientalis to complete their generation in this plant. Overwintered adults associated with host plants from mid May. After feeding several days on leaves, they mate and laid their eggs in flowerheads using rostrum by excavation of the oviposition hole. In addition, the adults damage the stem below flowerhead opening vertical holes. Adult activity period lasted approximately 44 days. Adult population rise to a peak level in the last week of May. Mating activity duration lasts approximately the adult activity period which is 37 days. After depositing eggs, females close on eggs a pale green secretion then this secretion dried, hardened and turned black. The eggs are laid superficially and it is easy to see the eggs when opening this dry secretion. Eggs occurrence span is 33 days. Hatching and feeding in flowerhead larvae continue to grow untill mid September. Larval period duration is 79 days. From the third week of July, pupae is seen in Flowerhead. If there are more than one larva or pupa in one flowerhead, this flowerhead abnormally shaped. Pupa duration is 51 days. Upon reaching the new generation adult stage, they wait in the flowerhead 7-10 days and emerge from here for find a suitable hibernating site such as under stones. This weevil shows an aggregation behavior which is possibly seen in 1-3 specimens together hiding under a stone for hibernation. In this way, L. onopordi produced one generation per year.

Bayram hocam, kamuflaj giymişler sanki:) ama yinede gznzden kamamışlar.
Ellerinize sağlık. Yumurtayı deve dikeni ieğine bıraktıklarını da ğrenmiş oldum. Teşekkrler hocam.
Saygılar,

Deniz

Merhaba Hocam,

Curculionidler kınkanatlılar iinde uzun baş yapıları ile belirgin bcekler. Galiba ağız paraları hortumun ucunda bulunuyor. Nesillerini devam ettirme telaşındaki bu iki hortumluyu kaırmamışsınız. Leyla hanımın dediği gibi magazine devam:)
Selamlar,
mer.

Hello Bayram,
A funny love-torrent again with the two strange-looking weevils. Somehow these creatures look so stupid, but I bet they are not.
Love the coloration of your shot.
Thanks and kind regards

Dayi cok guzel bu. Renkleri askeri elbiseler gibi. Kamufalaj muthis. Ellerine saglik. Selamlar.

hello Bayram

you are the greatest paparazzi of the world of insects lol !
another great shot of lovers on action, with very fine low POV,

Hello Bayram,
Outstanding capture with excellent colours, details and focus.
Great moment and fantastic details.
Marius.

Increible manejo de la luz amigo Bayram; incluso las tonalidades verdosas
del conjunto, no se si provocadas o no, dan ms nitidez si cabe. Las texturas
bien captadas y los volmes impresinantes por la buena profundidad conseguida.
Un excelente y didctico trabajo:
J. Ignasi,

Hola Bayram

Cada vez pones imagens ms buenas. Esta es fantastica, de la unin de estos dos insectos tan extraos, con esa parte delantera extraa, pero a la vez agradable su visin. Perfecta composicin y nitidez. POV excelente.

Un saludo de Antonio

Bayram..fotonun guzelligi, egiticiligi asikar..tek fotoda pekcok yon var..notlarin yine beni sasirtti.
bir bitki ile bir hayvan arasinda ne kadar guclu bir etkilesim var cok daha iyi anladim.. cok tesekkur ederim canim kardesim..

Hello Bayram,
Superb capture of these two interesting looking insects. The first thing that came into mind when I saw this photo was that they reminded me of a well known entertainer here in the US. from my childhood days, Jimmy Durante.
Excellent detail and attractive natural colors. Nicely composed with just the right exposure. Wonderful work!!

Hi Bareatom,
You have so many photos of animal love. :) Nice capture, great sharpness, colors, clearness, background. But I especially love the love moment. :) Quality shot, a heartfelt dedication to Jusni. Bravo Papa (I mean Papa-razzi) and tfs.
Have a great day MF, best regards, Lszl
