Dismorphia zathoe zathoe 

( Plate 10 View Figure , Fig. 35).

The egg is 1272.2 µm long and 549.5 µm wide; It is 2.32 times as long as it is wide; the maximum diameter is at the equator (Nh= 10). The egg is elongated citriform; the base is convex, almost 2 times wider than the acute apex and flat cusp. The apical area is slightly sharpened, just where the most distal ShA begins, toward the fourth rib. They have 35 to 44 ribs (modes = 38, 40); there is a predominance of straight lines parallel to the apical zone. The ribs extend from just before the base to the cusp; they often coincide between axes, although they alternate toward the base. They maintain intercostal distances of constant amplitude, except in the basal area (are reduced). At the apex, the last eight ribs are slightly curved. There are between 9 and 11 axes (LoA= 4, 5 or 6 and ShA= 4, 5 or 6); these are 2 times thicker than the ribs; the LoA are projected from the top of the smooth base, shortly before the first rib. The ShA are separated from the cusp by 1 to 7 ribs, often 4. The grid is made up of rectangles that are slightly more than 4 times wider than the equator at the equator; they are reduced in amplitude and size in the base. The eggs are asymmetric or show bilateral or radial symmetries. For the arrangement of the axes, the following formulas are recognized:>5L5C (LCLCLCLCLC); 4L6C (L3CLCLCLC), 5L6C (LCLCLCLCCLC), and 6L4C (2LCLC2LCLC). Color N0 0A10M0 0.
