Figure 16

Of the three larvae available, the one selecting for dissection because of its undistorted anatomy was a predefecating form. Its length of 5.8 mm could only be estimated by measurements derived from the illustration.

DESCRIPTION: Head: Size moderately small relative to body size (fig. 16); head not bilobed in frontal view. Vertex in lateral view curving to meet narrow rim of head capsule. Antennal papilla clearly tuberculate. Apical surface of labrum bearing extensive patch of elongate, multipronged spicules.
