Table 5 Reclassification of Triatoma garciabesi (T. gar), T. guasayana (T. gua), T. patagonica (T. pat) and T. sordida (T. sor) performed for shape variables of the head, pronotum and wings. The number and percentage of correctly 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
