Eclosion of Ditaxis biseriata. The images, from bottom to top, show a pharate stage when it becomes stationary before eclosion begins (bottom), an adult in the process of extracting the wings and legs from the pupal case, an adult with its legs free of the pupal case and (top) an adult with its wings in the splayed condition progressively becoming transparent.
