Résumé

The chromosomes of embryos within thelytokous females of Forda spp. were studied, in samples from galls on Pistacia in the Middle East, and from roots of Poaceae in the Middle East, Europe and North America. The nuclei of oogonial cells, oocytes and early cleavage stages have consistently more chromosomes than the nuclei of dividing cells in the somatic tissues of young embryos from the same mothers. Elimination of the extra germ line chromosomes apparently occurs in late cleavage. In F. marginata Koch the germ line chromosome number varies from 25 to 40 in different populations and the somatic cell number varies from 17 to 20; in F. formicaria the germ line has 21–23 chromosomes and somatic nuclei have 18 or 20. In both species variation occurs between samples from galls on Pistacia as well as between populations on roots of Poaceae. The numbers and relative sizes of the eliminated chromosomes also differ between populations. Comparable phenomena in other insects are briefly discussed.
