The segment from the dorsal side is a narrow stripe and, furthermore, only slightly visible in the investigated species of the Nepinae (Figures 7(a) and 7(b), Laccotrephes japonensis); the open stylet groove is slightly visible, which is dorsally covered by the epipharynx (labrum).
At digital investigation the lesion was of hard elastic consistence, with wide bottom, fixed to upper back wall of epipharynx, bleeding.
We have not been able to study the sensilla of the epipharynx which constitutes the internal face of the labrum because the dissection of the labrum of this small moth is very delicate and we have too few specimens at our disposal.
The larvae had convergent palidia with 22-26 pali, bullae of the respiratory stigmata with a melanized band, epipharynx with acanthoparia of 14-16 short spines, and plegmatia with 13-14 plegmata.
In addition to inspecting the nasal cavities using a headlamp and nose speculum, we also inspected the auditory canals and eardrums, the mouth, the epipharynx, and the larynx.
The epipharynx is lightly to moderately sclerotized adjacent to a more heavily sclerotized trapezoidal labrum.
