Prosopalpus styla Evans, 1937 

Congdon & Collins (1998) and Cock & Congdon (2014) report that TCEC observed P. styla  oviposit on an unidentified grass. Here we present an image of the ovum ( Figure 21View FIGURE 21) following manipulation of a scan of the original transparency. It appears to have about 35 well marked granular ribs, some of which stop well short of the micropyle.
