Abstract

The morphology of third-instar Piophila casei (L.) is described by means of scanning electron microscopy. Features of the anterior cephalic region and creeping welts that are used in larval skipping and creeping, respectively, are highlighted. Morphological features classically used for larval identification are also illustrated.
