Comments on the biology of Sciodrepoides watsoni watsoni (Spence, 1813) with descriptions of larvae and pupa (Coleoptera: Leiodidae: Cholevinae).
TLDR
The late-instar larva of Sciodrepoides watsoni w Watsoni is redescribed and the egg, first and second instar and pupa are described for the first time and compared with other known larvae of Cholevinae.
A description of the late-instar larva of Nossidium pilosellum [Marsham, 1802] [Coleoptera: Ptiliidae]
A detailed description of the late-instar larva of Nossidium pilosellum (MARSHAM) is given, the illustrations of structural features provided. The differences in morphological structures between the
Phylogenetic Analysis of Camiarinae (Coleoptera: Leiodidae) Based on Larval Morphology
TLDR
The analysis strongly supports the view that Camiarinae and its tribes are paraphyletic, grouping possibly ancient and relict taxa that are or have evolved from ancestors of the other subfamilies of Leiodidae.
Larval morphology of Scydmaenus tarsatus and S. hellwigii, with notes on feeding behaviour and a review of the bibliography on the preimaginal stages of ant-like stone beetles (Coleoptera:
TLDR
The feeding behaviour of immature S. tarsatus is described and it is demonstrated for the first time that Scydmaeninae larvae can feed on live springtails and not armoured mites.
Description of the second- and third-instar larva of South African Stenomastigus longicornis (Boheman) (Coleoptera: Staphylinidae, Scydmaeninae).
TLDR
Geniculate and slender antennae with a strongly oblique distal margin of antennomere II are a putative larval synapomorphy of Mastigitae, which is unique in lacking the urogomphs.
Comparative morphology of larval Camiarinae (Coleoptera: Leiodidae) Part I. Genus Paragyrtodes Szymczakowski 1966
TLDR
The first, second and third larval instars of the Australian genus Paragyrtodes Szymczakowski, 1966 are described and the problem of the identity of the larval glands in the family Leiodidae and superfamily Staphylinoidea is discussed.
Description of the Larva of Quaestus (Quaesticulus) Pachecoi (Bolivar, 1915) (Coleoptera: Leiodidae: Cholevinae)
TLDR
Chaetotaxy, morphology and measurements indicate that the Q. (Q.) pachecoi has a classic type of development with two instars only and larvae belong to aclassic type according to the Deleurance-Glaçon classification.
