Huntsman Posted May 20, 2008 Share Posted May 20, 2008 In Phoetalia pallida, the males and females both have wings, but the females are slightly larger and have a white spot on their flanks, correct? Well, that established, that means that the cute little purplish guys with the banded bodies are the nymphs... Will these nymphs moult out at some point from the banded 'look' to the winged, smooth look? Here's the weird part... If this is the case, how come many of these 'nymphs' are bigger than the adults already??! Quote Link to comment Share on other sites More sharing options...
