ametabolous metamorphosis

ametabolous metamorphosis
Ametabolous insects emerge from eggs into immatures of virtually the same shape as the adults. They're considered ametabolous because the insects simply get bigger and do not undergo any distinct rearrangements of body structures between the immature and adult stages.
