Immature Stages of Lonchaeidae


Detailed information on immature stages of Lonchaeidae is being acquired.  However, Taylor (1929, 1930) reported that the larvae of Lonchaea corticis Taylor are predaceous on those of Pissodes strobi Peck and related beetles.  The eggs are laid in clusters of 6-25 in the oviposition burrows of the beetles.  Larvae are not restricted entirely animal food but may also ingest frass, etc.
