Grochowska, M. 2008: Morphology of preimaginal stages of Cryptonevra flavitarsis (Diptera: Chloropidae) - an inquiline in galls formed by Lipara flies on common reed. - Entomol. Fennica 19: 18-24.
The paper presents a complete description of the morphology of the preimaginal stages of Cryptonevra flavitarsis (Meigen, 1830), an inquiline in galls of Lipara flies on common reed (Phragmites australis). All stages are described for the first time. In descriptions of the larval stages, particular attention is given to the diagnostic characters: facial mask, cephaloskeleton, anterior and posterior spiracles, and locomotory structures. The paper forms a basis for future descriptions of the yet unknown life cycle of this fly.
