status

 

Aquatica hydrophila (Jeng et al.)  

Luciola hydrophila Jeng et al., 2003: 544   (Fig. 39). Aquatica hydrophila (Jeng et al.)   . Fu et al., 2010: 6.

Diagnosis. Protergum having rounded sides, lacking pale markings ( Jeng et al. 2003; Fig. 39); thoracic terga 2, 3 and abdominal terga 1–8 with wide pale median line, otherwise lacking any pale markings, plates obliquely emarginate in anterolateral corners. Pygopodia with basal row having two retractable filaments.

Remarks. Larvae not examined by the authors herein. Jeng et al. (2003) briefly described the larva which they considered approached that of L. owadai   ; differentiated on the basis of dorsal colour patterns and pygopod structure.

FIGURES 1–6. Aquatica ficta   larval head, 6 th instar, SEM. 1 anterior, dorsal surface uppermost; 2 dorsal anterior half of head; 3 ventral; 4 right antenna; 5–6 maxillary palpus; 6 detail apical sensory area.
