In many Gymnosperms the male nucleus penetrates the female nucleus before fusing with it (Blackman, Ikeno).
The strongest direct evidence seems to be that the nuclear substances are the only parts of the cells which are always equivalent in quantity, and that in the higher plants and animals the male organ or spermatozoid is composed almost entirely of the nucleus, and that the male nucleus is carried into the female cell without a particle of cytoplasm.i Since, however, the nucleus of the female cell is always accompanied by a larger or smaller quantity of cytoplasm, and that in a large majority of the power plants and animals the male cell also contains cytoplasm, it cannot yet be definitely stated that the cytoplasm does not play some part in the process.

The female is a segmented, wormlike creature, spending her whole life within the body of the bee, wasp or bug on which she is parasitic.

Fabre states that the lastnamed insect uses a stone for the temporary closing of her burrow, and the Peckhams have seen a female Ammophila take a stone between her mandibles and use it as a hammer for pounding down the earth over her finished nest.
The female, instead of provisioning her burrow with a supply of food that will suffice the larva for its whole life, brings fresh flies with which she regularly feeds her young.
Most of the genera are " solitary " in habit, the female sex being undifferentiated; but among the humble-bees and hive-bees we find, as in social wasps and ants, the occurrence of workers, and the consequent elaboration of a wonderful insect-society.
The typical insectan ovipositor with its three pairs of processes, one pair belonging to the eighth and two pairs to the ninth abdominal segment, can be distinguished in the female.
a, Female from above; d, Jaws, more highly magnified b, From beneath, magnified 5 (tips of mandibles and 1st times; maxillae still more highly c, Vestigial wing; magnified).
a, Male; c, female (wingless).
b and d, Head and feelers of male and female, more highly magnified.
The female, by means of her serrated ovipositor, lays her eggs in slits cut in the twigs of plants.
a, Male; e, female; c, larva, magnified 20 times; b, foot of male; d, feeler of larva, more highly magnified.
a, Scale from beneath showing female and eggs; b, from above, magnified 24 times; c and e, female and male scales on twigs, natural size; d, male scale magnified 12 times.
'12' a) have the fore-wings developed and the hind-wings greatly reduced, while in the female wings are totally absent and the body undergoes marked degradation (figs.
Here it undergoes its fifth and last moult, and appears as a winged female, capable of reproducing parthenogenetically.
From the larger a female (fig.
