Fanti F., Di Taddeo V., Bocci M., 2017. Description of the larva of Lygistopterus anorachilus Ragusa, 1883 (Coleoptera: Lycidae). Baltic J. Coleopterol., 17(2): 137 - 145.

It is presented here, for the first time, the description of the larva of Lygistopterus anorachilus Ragusa, 1883. The larva is compared with the other European species and, particularly, with the very similar Lygistopterus sanguineus (Linnaeus, 1758) from which it differs for the different colouration of the urogomphi and last abdominal tergite (A9). Furthermore, the last tergite is shorter and rounder on the sides and the urogomphi are more robust and rounded and less curved.

KeyWords : Coleoptera, Lycidae, Lygistopterus anorachilus, Italian endemism, larva
