Morphology and chaetotaxy of Henosepilachna ocellata (Redtenbacher) (Coleoptera: Coccinellidae) larvae
Author(s): Dr. SPS Phaloura
Abstract: Armature of coccinellid larvae is complicated, challenging but of considerable significance. Morphology and chaetotaxy of the Henosepilachna ocellata (Redtenbacher) mature fourth instar larvae is described here and differences with other instars highlighted. A novel attempt has been made to present the larval armature in the form of setal maps that can make the comparative study of different species comprehensive and handy.
