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 21 View 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.
