Abstract External and internal structures of the cerambycoid and triungulin larvae of Micromalthus debilis are described and compared to features found in larvae of other groups of Coleoptera. The morphological data are evaluated with respect to the systematic position of Micromalthidae. A cladistic analysis was carried out with fifty characters. Micromalthidae are not closely related to Lymexylidae (Polyphaga: Cucujiformia) but belong to Archostemata, which is confirmed as a monophyletic unit… Expand
