One of the mysteries of the English language finally explained.

- ‘The early stages of metamorphosis are characterized by programmed cell death and histolysis of most larval tissues.’
- ‘In other polymorphic insects, flightless morphs result from wing muscle histolysis even though fully developed wings remain.’
- ‘Loss of the daily cyclicity in the JH titer occurs co-incident with flight muscle histolysis in the LW morph.’
- ‘In addition, the cases surrounding the prepupae were filled with white fluid, possibly due to incomplete histolysis of the fat bodies.’
