Figure 17

The two smaller larvae identified below appeared in most respects identical to that of P. (Scaura) latitarsis   including the same estimated length of 5.8 mm. However, the mandibular apex of P. coccidophila   is substantial shorter and more robust contrasting with the elongate slender tapering mandibular apex of P. latitarsis   .

MATERIAL STUDIED: 3 mature larvae (2 smaller specimens including one described containing abundant fecal material restricted to the hind intestine, 1 much larger specimen which may be a predefecating form): Brazil, Amazonas, São Gabriel da Cachoeira. 02 - V 3II- 1999. J.M.F. Camargo (Nest 791c).
