dc.description.abstract Examination of the terminal abdominal ganglia of the New Zealand maritime earwig Anisolabis littorea (White) revealed a paraldehyde fuchsin stainable material in animals which had undergone some degree of dehydration. A Malpighian tubule bioassay preparation enabled the physiological activity of extracts of the terminal abdominal ganglia and pharmacologically actives substances to be monitored. Results obtained suggest that substances are present in the terminal abdominal ganglia which alter the Malpighian tubule secretion rate. These results are discussed in view of current theories of Malpighian tubule secretion in insects. en
