Carcavallo, Galvão & Lent, 1998 Through Optical and Scanning Electron Microscopy - Eggs and nymphs of Triatoma jurbergi were described using optical microscopy and scanning electron microscopy. T. jurbergi
is a wild species, found in State of Mato Grosso (15°S and 300 m.a.s.l), Brazil. Eggs showed the operculum and surface with pentagonal and hexagonal cells, with small fractures and punctuations randomly distributed. Differences were found in the five nymphal stages of T. jurbergi
, that allow their to be distinguished from the similar species T. guazu
. The diagnostic characters most useful for differentiation were the general color of the insect, abdomen shape and its length.
