Identification of larval instars of Aedes albopictus (Skuse) and Aedes triseriatus (Say) (Diptera: Culicidae) based on head capsule size

Identification of larval instars of Aedes albopictus (Skuse) and Aedes triseriatus (Say) (Diptera: Culicidae) based on head capsule size

Effects of constant temperature (15, 23, 31 degrees C) on the head capsule widths of the larval instars of A. albopictus and A. triseriatus were determined in the laboratory. For both species, head capsule widths were significantly different between instars (P<0.001). Temperature significantly affected the size of head capsules of larvae of both species.
