Abstract

Keys, based on the morphology of first- and third-instar larvae, are described for distinguishing the 13 genera of European Chrysopidae. The eggs, first-instar larvae and third-instar larvae of all genera are illustrated. Data on the biology and behaviour of the larvae are also presented.

Résumé

Dans ce travail nous présentons les caractères morphologiques des larves de Chrysopes qui sont utilisés dans la détermination des 13 genres qui habitent en Europe, ainsi que des clés pour l'identification des premiers et troisièmes stades larvaires (L-1 et L-3). Les stades L-1 et L-3 de tous les generes étudiés sont illustrés par des figures.
