Material examined. CHINA: Eight sixth instars bred from an original population of 4 males and 1 female collected from Xishuangbanna Tropical Botanical Garden, Chinese Academy of Science, Jinghong City, Xishuangbanna Province, May 16, 2010 (NHMHAU).

Diagnosis. The only species of Asymmetricata   with reliably associated larvae; distinguished by its laterally explanate tergal margins, short antennal sense cone and the largely yellow dorsal colouration, broken by a continuous wide median band of black running from the anterior area of thoracic tergum 2 to the posterior margin of terminal tergum (Figs 49–54, 87, 88). At least 58 expanded pygopodia arise from basal stalks which may branch more than once; recurved hooks surround the entire surface of the expanded pygopod (Fig. 93).

FIGURES 61–66. Larval pygopodia. 61–62 Aquatica leii   (5 th instar); 63–64 Pygoluciola qingyu   (6 th instar); 65–66 Asymmetricata circumdata   (6 th instar).
