  • The morphological ontogeny of Minunthozetes semirufus (C.L. Koch, 1841) is redescribed and illustrated. The juveniles of this species have a humeral organ and a gastronotal shield, which bears four pairs of setae (dm, dp, lp, h1) in the larva, and 10 pairs (d-, l-, h-series, p1) in the nymphs.

In the juveniles, the prodorsal and gastronotal setae are short, and in the nymphs setae of c… CONTINUE READING
