N.a.acuticeps shows sexual dimorphism that fits into Rensch’s rule and dimorphism is female biased. Analysis of variation in body size with reference to different geographical climatic conditions has been carried out. Colder climatic conditions have produced slightly larger body size for males, but in warmer zones females did not show body size variations during summer. In semi arid zone these insects appeared only during winter indicating shift in life cycle.
