Immature Stages of Myiodactylidae

[This group is generally included in the Nymphidae]


Detailed information on immature stages of Myiodactylidae is being acquired.  However, Clausen (1940) noted that there are few genera in the family, which is restricted to Australia and certain islands in the South Pacific.  The larvae of Osmylops pallidus Banks (Fig. 154) are almost circular with prominent mandibles.  They lurk upon the undersides of the leaves of eucalyptus trees where they prey on other insects.
