Morphology of the first instar nymph of Leucaspis loewi Colvée (Hemiptera: Coccinea: Diaspididae)
Polish Journal of Entomology (Polskie Pismo Entomologiczne) 81 (1), 43-47
Abstract: The first instar nymph of Leucaspis lowi Colvée is redescribed and illustrated. The sex has not been determined. It has 5-segmented antennae, one trilocular disc pore associated with the anterior spiracle, one pair of well-developed lobes, and fimbriate plates on all abdominal segments. Tibia and tarsus are not fused - they are separated from each other by a septum. A campaniform sensillum is always present at the bases of the tarsi. Dorsal submedian setae are present on each abdominal segment 1-7.
