Laggard chromosomes (Figure 1D and J) were visualized in MPP I and MPP II plants, affecting 16.83% of meiocytes in anaphase I and 35.90% in anaphase II, respectively.
rubromarginata the chromosome segregation takes place in anaphase I whereas the equational division occurs during anaphase II. This meiotic pattern is known to be characteristic of the most hemipteran groups.
The duration from metaphase I to anaphase II occupied less than 24 h, which was consistent with previous studies of meiotic timing in grasshoppers (Peacock 1970).
The centromeres then divide at the beginning of anaphase II, and the two chromatids separate and move toward opposite poles.
This differs from CD-washout, in which dual anaphase II spindles appear nearly end-on to the cortex (Fig.
