#61238 Identification -- Ululodes sp.
This is a group of first instar larvae of an owlfly of the genus Ululodes. Two Ululodes species are currently recorded from Arkansas, quadripunctatus and macleayanus, and it could be either of these. Note the abortive eggs ("repagula") on the stem below the larval group. First instar larvae of Ululodes typically remain in a group with the original egg clutch for several days before dropping to the ground below and going their own ways. For accounts of the biology of one Ululodes species see Bibliography of the Neuropterida (http://insects.tamu.edu/research/neuropterida/neur_bibliography/bibhome.html) reference numbers (r#) 2875 and 2877.
