Abstract The head of third instar larvae of Hydroscapha natans was reconstructed three dimensionally on a computer. [...] Key Result The monophyly of the Myxophaga (excluding Lepiceridae) is supported by several autapomorphies of the larval head: a broadened, transverse head, scale-like cuticular surface structures, round and flattened labral sensilla, short antennae with only two antennomeres, a ligula with papillae, and a broadened tentorial bridge.Expand
