Female adults of the bagworm moths belonging to the subfamily Epichnopteriginae are vermiform in body shape, i.e., without external appendages. Larvae of the vermiform female Eumeta variegata (Snellen) belonging to the subfamily Oiketicinae have small wing rudiments, which do not grow but disappear during the prepupal stage. Herein we describe the morphology of wing buds in the wingless female bagworm moth Epichnopterix plumella (Denis & Schiffermüller), subfamily Epichnopteriginae and… Expand
