Thread subject: :: Platystomatidae

Hi Nikita,

The Platystomatidae do have a costal break (at humeral position), so I am afraid Shtakelberg is wrong in this case.
Just a quick glance at some pictures of wings of Calyptratae showed me that costal breaks are actually present. I suppose there are other members who can give you a more detailed answer on your Calyptratae question.
