ABSTRACT Specialized insect mouthparts, such as those of Drosophila, are derived from an ancestral mandibulate state, but little is
known about the developmental genetics of mandibulate mouthparts. Here, we study the metamorphic patterning of mandibulate
mouthparts of the beetle Tribolium castaneum, using RNA in
