Abstract

In order to find a taxonomical difference between the larvae of A. stephensi and A. superpietus, 100 larvae of each species were taken and the number of branchings of the middle prothoracic hairs in the direction of the outer prothoracic hair were counted. The means found for A. stephensi and A. superpictus are 11.20 and 13.11 respectively, which are statistically significant. Further studies on this subject are suggested
