Immature Stages of Gasteruptiidae


Detailed information on immature stages of Gasteruptiidae is being acquired.  However, Clausen (1940) noted that the mature larva of Gasteruption assectator F. Is a bit elongated and bears bands of stout, brownish-colored setae, which are pointed backward on the dorsum of the segments.  A fewer number of setae occur ventrally.  There are 9 pairs of spiracles, which are located on the 2nd thoracic and the first 8 abdominal segments.  Mandibles are tridentate.
