Clusia   and Clusiodes  

Clusia   . Third stage larva: length 8–9mm; maximum width 1.5mm; maximum height 1.6mm; puparium: length 4.5–8mm and pupal spiracles present; anterior spiracles with 4–6 respiratory bulbs ( Figs 8–9 View FIGURES 8 – 18 ); antero-dorsal margins of metathorax ( Fig 2 View FIGURES 1 – 3 ) and abdominal segments 1–6 with a narrow band of spiculate ridges ( Fig 20 View FIGURES 19 – 22 ) extending transversely and ending before the lateral margins, bands becoming narrower and spicule rows less frequent from segment 1 to 6; locomotory organs on the anterior margin of the metathorax and abdominal segments 1–7 widest medially, tapering laterally with even-sized spicules ( Fig 22 View FIGURES 19 – 22 ); margins of the anal plate with numerous spiculate ridges ( Fig 56 View FIGURES 56 – 57 ); middle region of the anal segment with a complete, large and conspicuous flange Figs 26–27 View FIGURES 25 – 26 View FIGURES 27 – 29 ); hooks associated with posterior spiracles with incurved apices ( Fig 24 View FIGURES 23 – 24 ); posterior spiracular plates elevated and pale in the larva, black in the puparium with extensive interspiracular setae bearing 5–15 branches (often broken or missing) ( Fig 24 View FIGURES 23 – 24 ).

Clusiodes   . Third stage larva: length 6–8mm; maximum width 0.8mm; maximum height 1mm; puparium: length 3.5–5mm, pupal spiracles may or may not be present, if present often expanded imperfectly; anterior spiracles with 3–10 respiratory bulbs ( Figs 10–18 View FIGURES 8 – 18 ); antero-dorsal margins of metathorax ( Fig 1 View FIGURES 1 – 3 ) and abdominal segments 1–2 with a narrow band of smooth ridges lacking spicules ( Fig 19 View FIGURES 19 – 22 ), extending transversely and ending before the lateral margins; locomotory organs on the anterior margin of the metathorax and abdominal segments 1–7 widest medially, tapering laterally with variable-sized spicules: anterior band with rows of ridges bearing small spicules; next, a narrow band of ridges with large spicules followed by a wider band of smooth, non-spiculate ridges ( Fig 21 View FIGURES 19 – 22 ); margins of the anal plate with few spiculate ridges ( Fig 57 View FIGURES 56 – 57 ); middle region of the anal segment lacking complete circumventing flanges, usually several, incomplete and small folds or wrinkles present or wrinkles more or less absent; apices of hooks associated with posterior spiracles orientated dorsally ( Fig 23 View FIGURES 23 – 24 ); posterior spiracular plates pale in the larva and puparium, not elevated and interspiracular setae with up to 5 terminal branches (often broken or missing) ( Fig 23 View FIGURES 23 – 24 ).
