Galiomyza galiivora larva

Asperula odorata, Wellerlooi

cephalic skeleton lateral; rear spiracula dorsal

front and rear spiraculum, lateral

mouth region

The larva is described by Dempewolf (2001a). The few living larvae I have seen of G. galiivora all were bright yellow, contrary to the whitish larvae of G. morio; if this is a reliable differentiating character remains to be established.
