Ocnerostoma friesei larva

Ocnerostoma friesei

Ocnerostoma friesei larva

Pinus sylvestris, Nunspeet; dead larva; the living larva is much darker brown

pronotum; anal valves

rudiment of an abdominal proleg – extremely small; possibly here is a distinction with the larva of O. piniariella.

Pinus sylvestris, Rhenen: here something has gone askance: to the left the latest frass, next the dried remnants of the larva, finally at right the cocoon of the parasitoid
