Head morphology of Osmylus fulvicephalus (Osmylidae, Neuroptera) and its phylogenetic implications

Abstract

External and internal head structures of Osmylus fulvicephalus were examined and described in detail. Exo- and endoskeleton, musculature, elements of the central nervous system and tracheae are compared to conditions found in other groups of Neuropterida and other endopterygote lineages. Thirty-six adult cephalic characters were compiled, combined in a… (More)
