Abstract:

Two larval instars of Quaestus (Quaesticulus) pachecoi (Bolivar, 1915) are described and illustrated for the first time. Chaetotaxy, morphology and measurements indicate that the Q. (Q.) pachecoi has a classic type of development with two instars only and larvae belong to a classic type according to the Deleurance-Glaçon classification.
