  • This paper presents a method with accuracy to estimate instars for insects which have large number of instars, especially at long growth period. We clarified the colony composition of the wood-feeding cockroach Panesthia angustipennis spadica Shiraki (Blaberidae) in a field, estimating the instars of field-collected individuals through a cluster analysis using field and laboratory data. Overall, 84.8% sampled units contained multiple individuals, and the largest colony consisted of 65… CONTINUE READING
