Cicada parasitic moths from China (Lepidoptera: Epipyropidae): morphology, identity, biology, and biogeography

Yunxiang Liu, Zhaofu Yang, Guoyun Zhang, Qingqing Yu & Cong Wei
Species of the family Epipyropidae are infrequently collected due to their ectoparasitic lifestyle and have therefore received little study.

The species Epipomponia oncotympana Yang (nom. invalid.) was found to be identical with E. nawai. The morphology of the egg, larva, pupa, and adult of E. nawai is described, including the ultrastructure...
