Grochowska, M. 2006: Morphology of preimaginal stages of Lipara pullitarsis Doskocil & Chvála, 1971 (Diptera: Chloropidae) – a gall-forming fly in the common reed (Phragmites australis). — Entomol. Fennica 17: 387–393.
All preimaginal stages of Lipara pullitarsis are described and illustrated. The facial mask, cephaloskeleton, spiracles and locomotory structures are considered. This is the first description of the first- and second-instar larva. The descriptions of the third-instar larva, egg and puparium are expanded. This paper forms a basis for a complete description of the life history of this fly.
