Les larves et nymphes des Trichoptères des Seychelles

  • G. Marlier
Conference paper


The immature instars of 6 species of Trichoptera collected in the Seychelles Islands by Prof. F. STARMÜHLNER’s (1974) and by the author’s (1976) expeditions are described.

Of great interest is the discovery of the larva of two unknown species; the first one attributed to Hughscottiella (ULMER) is characterized by a most elongated and retractile prothorax; the second one, attributed to Leptodermatopteryx, is more classical and rather similar to a beraeid larva.
