Larva of the leaf beetle Labidostomis longimana (Coleoptera, Chrysomelidae, Clytrinae)

  • A. O. Bieńkowski
Short Communications


The first- and the last-instar larvae of the leaf-beetle Labidostomis longimana are described in detail for the first time. The last instar larva is morphologically close to L. sibirica larva and differs from it in the absence of a projection in the medial emargination of the labrum, in the presence of 7 spiniform setae on the tibiotarsus ventrally, 11–13 narrow simple setae on the tibiotarsus dorsally, and fine rugae on the larval case.
