Özet

The morphology of the spermatheca Enoplops disciger (Kolenati, 1845) (Heteroptera: Coreidae) was examined by optical and scanning electron microscopy (SEM). The spermatheca of E. disciger is characterized by the presence of a T-shaped or reniform, sclerotized spermathecal bulb, whose surface is covered by many pores, a fairly short, spirally twisted spermathecal duct; a single flanged spermathecal pump; and two lateral sclerotized rings.
