Table 2 Reclassification of Triatoma garciabesi (T. gar), T. guasayana (T. gua), T. patagonica (T. pat) and T. sordida (T. sor) performed for linear variables of the head and pronotum. The number and percentage of assigned individuals derived from discriminant function analyses are presented

From: Morphometric variability among the species of the Sordida subcomplex (Hemiptera: Reduviidae: Triatominae): evidence for differentiation across the distribution range of Triatoma sordida
