Abstract
<jats:p>and maximum values are respectively 100 &amp;mu;m for Aleochara intricata Mannerheim and 3.000 &amp;mu;m for Heterota plumbea (Waterhouse). E valuations for most species were carried out either on spermatozoa separated from the spermatheca or on bundles extracted from testes. Sperm length of Atheta inquinula was supposedly assumed as corresponding to that of the vasa deferentia. Conclusive diagrams show sperm length in some species to be disproportionate if compared with the size of the receptacle.</jats:p>
