Abstract

There is little published material aviliable concerning cattle grub spiracles other than descriptions of the external surface of the stigmal plate. The representative species of Oestroid larvae studied by the early European morphologist was the northern cattle grub, Hypoderma bovis (L.) and their published conclusions of its spiracular exploration were meager. Major components of the spiracle such as a common atrium, stigmal plate and the hollow plates connecting these two structures were described to the extent necessary to establish differences between larval groups.
