Abstract

The larval instars of the wheat midge, Sitodiplosis mosellana (Géhin) (Diptera: Cecidomyiidae).

Abstract

Sitodiplosis mosellana is shown to have three larval instars. Each instar is described, the initial instar for the first time. An alleged synonym of S. mosellana, Cecidomyia amyotii, is removed from synonymy and considered a dubious name.
