Cueta lineosa: a) Adult; b) third instar larvae, dorsal view; c) third instar larva, ventral view; d) head: longer than wide; with dorsal view and eye tubercles; e) stemmata, lateral view; f) mandible, ventral view; g) first, second and third mandibular tooth; h and i) Sensilla coeloconica on mandible

Fig. 2.

Cueta lineosa: a) Sensilla coeloconica on mandible; b, c and d) labial palpus with distal four palpomeres, with sensilla basiconica; d and e) each antenna with ten flagellar segments and apex of last flagellomere with three finger shaped lobes sensilla basiconica; f) thoracic spiracles; g) abdomen with white dolichasters and sternite eighth with two small submedian teeth; h) digging bristles; i) the tip of the tarsus of all legs has two claws. Between the claws with two short sensilla trichodea and surface tarsus has sensillum chaeticum.
