Number: 456, Pages: 17 - 21

The larva of the Protaetia (Liocola) insperata (Lewis, 1879) is described and illustrated for the first time. The larva of P. insperata is similar to larvae of P. famelica and P. brevitarsis, but differs from both by a number of spinules in symmetrical rows on the anal sternite, and by a chaetotaxy of head capsula and epipharengial surface. A key to larvae of the genus Protaetia from the Russian Far East is given.
