the immature form of many animals, which hatches from the egg and often differs in appearance from the adult form.
The young of certain insects and invertebrates.
An early developmental stage of an organism that is morphologically different from the juvenile or adult form. See EMBRYONIC DEVELOPMENT.
The immature form and stage of development of some insect species that go through extreme changes in the developmental process of becoming an adult.
Independent immature animals that occur in some species. They undergo big changes or 'metamorphosise' to assume the typical adult form.
Immature stage for some insects (frequently looks worm-like).
The wingless and often wormlike hatchlings of insects; also, the early form of an animal (such as a frog or sea urchin) which at birth or hatching is fundamentally unlike its parent and must metamorphose before assuming adult characteristics. [Go to source
newly hatched young
the early form of most invertebrates, amphibians and fish, that is unlike its adult form and must metamorphose before assuming adult characteristics.
Insects or parasites that have hatched from eggs but are not yet mature. For example, maggots.
n, pl : the immature, wingless, and often wormlike form that hatches from the egg of many insects
the immature, wingless, and often worm-like form in which certain insects hatch from the egg, and in which they remain, with increase in size and other minor changes, until they enter the chrysalis stage. Butterfly and moth larvae are also known as caterpillars. Singular: larva.
the embryonic life-cycle stages that follow the fertilization of an egg of a metamorphic animal
The early stage of some organisms between egg and adult form. Some orgainsms have more than one stage of larvae
an insect, or in this case a coral polyp, in its early stage of development, produced as the result of sexual reproduction; most coral polyp larvae are small and drift in the ocean before becoming adults.
refers to the immature stage of some amphibians.
Immature forms of organisms, that typically look different from the fully grown adult and are usually smaller than the adult or even microscopic.
Larvae refers to the juvenile stage of most invertebrates, amphibians, and fish, which all hatch from eggs. It is unlike the adult in form and is usually incapable of sexual reproduction. It develops into the adult by undergoing metamorphosis. Examples are the tadpoles of frogs or caterpillars of butterflies.
Larvae are one stage of growth for insects and some other animals. Insects that reproduce through complete metamorphosis have these four stages: egg, larva or nymph, pupa, and adult. A caterpillar is a butterfly larva.
recently hatched fish which are still too young to feed.
a young form of an animal which is unlike the adult and must metamorphosize before taking on adult characteristics.
Mosquito larvae are immature, wingless forms that develop in water.
The life stage of a flea or tick that hatches from the egg. Flea larvae are small yellowish maggot-like looking creatures, while tick larvae or "seed ticks" are tiny six legged ticks. The larvae of both fleas and ticks must feed before further development can occur.
Immature wingless forms of insects such as mosquitoes.
n, pl.] the immature, wingless, and often worm-like stage of many insects after hatching from the egg and before transformation into a pupa or chrysalis
The earliest developmental stages of various animals that undergo metamorphosis, differing markedly in form and appearance from the adult.
an immature stage in the life of an animal
The newly hatched, wingless, often wormlike form of many insects before metamorphosis.
A wingless, newly hatched bee.
immature, young insects, amphibians, or fish. In the case of amphibians and insects, the larvae often look completely unlike the adults.
An early developmental stage of an animal, especially insects.
Larvae are the immature, aquatic, growing stage of the caddis and some other insects. Many species of caddis larva build a protective covering of fine gravel or debris to protect them in this stage. The larva is a bottom dwelling non-swimming stage of the insect.
A young insect that quits the egg in an early stage of development and differs fundamentally in form from the adult. The immature form of animals that undergo metamorphosis; other related terms are nymph, caterpillar, slug, maggot, and grub.
Immature feeding form that hatches from an egg
lahR-Vayy) Larval. A second-stage form of an immature insect which undergoes a complete metamorphosis. The stage before the larval stage would be egg, the stage after would be pupa, and after that is adulthood. A caterpillar is a larva. So is a grub, and so is a "crawler."
Immature forms or stages in the life cycle of certain small animals, such as insects or parasites.
The immature feeding stage of beetles and moths.
Immature stages of adult parasite; the term applies to insects, ticks and worms.
Is the immature stage of an insect between egg and pupal stages associated with complete metamorphosis.
The immature stage of mosquitoes which they develop into underwater after emerging from their eggs. Any standing water will suffice, and they can often be seen near the surface using breathing tubes. (See below and Oils).
The first stage of development after hatching for many fish and invertebrates.
The young of any insect which goes through metamorphosis (changes in body structure) before becoming an adult.
newly hatched insects that are still without wings
A juvenile phase differing markedly in morphology and ecology from the adult.
Immature stage of parasite or insect that changes structurally as it matures.
Immature but active stage of growth.
Insect from time of leaving egg till transformation into pupa e.g. a caterpillar is the larval state of a butterfly.
the immature stage of some organisms; differs in form and appearance from adults.
