    Adults usually remain near water, although they are attracted to lights at night. In most species, the adults live only a few days and rarely feed.

Choate Many authorities include the Megaloptera in the Order Neuroptera. Other feel Megaloptera should be a separate Order. Here are the characters used to separate Megaloptera from the remaining Neuroptera. (from Arnett, ). 1. The hypothesis of the monophyly of the neuropteroidean orders (Neuroptera + Raphidioptera + Megaloptera), hitherto almost completely based on symplesiomorphous characters only, is supported now by some presumably derivative synapomorphous states: (1) a transversal suture on the notum of the first abdominal segment which is homologous to the metathoracic .

This fully illustrated guide should enable most beginners to identify the adults of most British bugs (Hemiptera) to family level. The clearly written booklet aids identification of British bugs, and lists of the characteristics of the main aphid families are given.

The larvae of antlions and lacewings have specialized mouthparts with large, sickle-shaped mandibles and maxillae that interlock to form pincers.

Once impaled on these pincers, a prey's body contents are sucked out through hollow food channels running between the adjacent surfaces of the mandibles and maxillae. Freshwater Megaloptera and Neuroptera of Britain and Ireland: keys to adults and larvae, and a review of their ecology.

Movement: Larvae burrow in fine sediments at the bottom. Size: Mature larvae grow up to sizes around 30 mm.

Life cycle: Alderflies undergo complete metamorphosis. Their life cycle includes four stages – egg, larva, pupa and adult. The order Neuroptera includes the lacewings and antlions (suborder Planipennia), dobsonflies and alderflies (suborder Megaloptera) and snakeflies (suborder Raphidoidea).

"Splitters" prefer to assign each of these groups to a separate order (Neuroptera, Megaloptera, and Raphidioptera, respectively), based on differences in structure and development.

Osmylid eggs are deposited in groups of up to 12 on vegetation, tree trunks, or stones (New,Beutel et al., ).Immature stages are long and fusiform with long tapering straight jaws ().The larvae of some genera of the subfamilies Osmylinae and Kempyninae are strongly associated with freshwater habitats and are considered to be amphibious.

Adults are usually crepuscular, and often attracted to light. The ovoid eggs with prominent, knobbed micropy (or projection), are laid in masses on objects near water.

Egg masses may be one to five layered, and with to eggs. Larvae are aquatic and aggressively predaceous. Megaloptera and Neuroptera Elliott, J.M.

The partial mitochondrial cytochrome c oxidase subunit I (COI) gene sequences for South Korean Megaloptera (all known in the adult stage) were tested to identify undetermined larvae as a rapid and effective method from 31 specimens (16 adults and 15 larvae).

The COI gene sequences distinguished all six known Megaloptera species, with a low Cited by: 3. The most interesting of the exceptions are species in the family Sisyridae, some of which develop as larvae inside freshwater sponges. Because only a relatively small number of species are still included in Neuroptera sensu lato, this book provides keys to all known South American species that have been described well enough to be identified Author: Charles W.

Heckman. Megaloptera adults lay their egg masses on rocks, tree trunks, leaves, and other substrates adjacent to water, and the young larvae fall or crawl into the water shortly after hatching. Sialid egg masses are single layered, whereas corydalids lay their eggs in egg masses of one to five layers (Evans & Neunzig ).

Megaloptera can be distinguished from other orders of insects by combination of characters: holometaboly, terrestrial adults and eggs, predaceous aquatic larvae.

Where there are major gaps in the knowledge of South American neuropteran fauna, such as lacks of specimens of the larvae and knowledge of their development and metamorphosis, these are pointed out in the : Charles W. Heckman. The Megaloptera are of a moderate to large size, both as adults and larvae.

Larvae might range from 10 to 90 mm whereas adults can be slightly larger and have very long wingspans (up to mm). Larvae are generally flattened dorsoventrally, with chewing mouthparts designed for their predatory lifestyles.

Unlike Megaloptera, larvae generally travel longer distances and construct a silken cocoon in which to pupate. (During this stage in particular spongillaflies are susceptible to predation and parasitism - pteromalid wasps of Sisyridivora parasitize Climacia larvae and pupae in their cocoons (Pupedis )).

Because larvae lack a gut, the adult. The insect order Neuroptera, or net-winged insects, includes the lacewings, mantidflies, antlions, and their order consists of some 6, species.

Neuroptera can be grouped together with the Megaloptera and Raphidioptera in the unranked taxon Neuropterida (once known as Planipennia) including: alderflies, fishflies, dobsonflies, and : Insecta.

Larvae: Gills present or absent on thorax and abdomen-Prolegs are present on abdominal segments and Crochets are in the form of a circle or curved rows and is composed of hooks of at least 2 distinct sizes Adults: Small, drab coloring, with finely patterned wings-Forewings (less than 15 mm) occasionally reduced.

Members of Megaloptera are sometimes confused with lacewings (Neuroptera) and stoneflies (Plecoptera).Alderflies and dobsonflies can be distinguished from lacewings by the absence of terminal branching wing veins and from the later as stoneflies possess abdominal cerci and hind wings that are larger and broader than their forewings.

In total, 2 of 17 families of Neuroptera have aquatic larvae: Nevrorthidae live in the benthos of fast-flowing streams and Sisyridae reside on freshwater sponges.
