Abstract

The final instars of Eurytoma nodularis and E. heriadi are described and illustrated. Morphological structures of diagnostic value are discussed. The most salient character shown by the mature larvae of these two species lies in the mandibles, which are simple (unidentate), a feature that, according to current knowledge, is only shared with E. verticillata.
