29 Strepsiptera

The full number of five tarsomeres and double claws are present in males of Mengenillidae , Mengeidae and Triozocerinae ( Kinzelbach 1971). Tarsomeres are densely covered with hairs ( Kinzelbach 1971). Broadened proximal tarsomeres, and loss of claws and the distal tarsomere, is characteristic of males of Stylopiformia ( Kinzelbach 1971).
