Larva of Osmoderma eremita. A Habitus and B Raster (ventral spiny area of the last abdominal segment). Note the lack of the palidia (the two longitudinal series of spinules occurring in the raster of most fruit chafers) and the end of the legs provided with a short and stout claw (see text for detailed explanation).
