what immature insect has no pupal stage? it was something that starts with an N and it was made popular by Nabokov?

Amateur entomologist Vladimir Nabokov created a new word for the English lexicon when he wrote the earth shattering novel Lolita. Entomologically as well as Etomologically, the term Nymph refers to the immature phase of an insect that undergoes incomplete metamorphosis. The Nymph looks much like the adult, but often without wings and mature coloration. Nabokov coined the term Nymphette to describe the pubescent Lolita in his novel with the same name.
