Antlion Larva

Antlion Larva

Dear E.,
This is some species of Neuropteran larva, and we believe it is an Antlion larva in the family Myrmeleontidae.  There isn’t a great website for Western Australian insects, but the Brisbane Insect site has many species of Antlions represented and some of those may also be found in Western Australia.  We will be postdating your submission to go live during our holiday absence.

Location: Perth, Western Australia
