Table 6 For each species, validated reclassification scores between viable (V) and non-viable eggs (NV)

From: Triatominae: does the shape change of non-viable eggs compromise species recognition?

Species Egg Operculum

P. c. Si 56 (19/34) 45 (10/22) 52 85 (29/34) 32 (7/22) 64

  1. The reclassification method was based on either size (Si) or shape (Sh), separately. Validated classification, i.e. the percent of correctly assigned individuals (ratio in parentheses)
  2. Abbreviations: Si size, Sh shape, P. c. Panstrongylus chinai, P. h. P. howardi, T. c. Triatoma carrioni, R. e. Rhodnius ecuadoriensis, Global total scores
