Complete
Metamorphosis

Incomplete
Metamorphosis
the development of certain
insects that includes three distinct
life stages – the egg, the nymph,

Wk 29: Lifecycles of Insects/Complete and Incomplete Metamorphosis
Larva

stage of an insect that undergoes
complete metamorphosis.
Pupa
the nonfeeding, usually immobile,
transformation stage between the
larva and the adult stage.
Adult
the stage at which an organism is
fully developed and can
reproduce.
Nymph

insects that do not pass through a
pupa stage. Nymphs usually
resemble the adults, but are
smaller, lack fully developed
wings, and are not able to
reproduce.
