Thank you

Many thanks Douglas,
I don't know, hence my question:

Does size have any relevance to separating the Larva..?

(Probably not, but I had to ask).

Size

Hi Mick,

When separating these two species, no, size is unhelpful.

The only way to tell, of course, would be to breed it through.

Best wishes,

Douglas
