Symphoricarpos albus, Nieuwendam: rear spiraculum, with an indication of a central protuberance

The larva is described by de Meijere (1949a) and Dempewolf (2001a). Rear spiraculum with a circle of about 20 papillae; unlike in the related A. cornigera, there is no spinelike protuberance in the centre (although sometimes an indication may be seen). Also the larva has on the prosternum, behind the mouth, a conspicious “rape”, a spinulose field that is missing in cornigera.
