octopod nymphs and adults


The source contains a typo: ectopod := octopod.

"A Mite starts its life as an egg, it then passes through some, or all of the following life stages (called stases in mites) a prelarva (which has no mouth or legs and does not feed or move from inside the eggshell), a larva which is hexapod (has six legs), three nymphal stages called 'protonymph' 'deuteronymph' and tritonymph before becoming an adult"

Example sentence(s):
  • "Both mites have a 4-stage life cycle consisting of egg, hexapod larva, octopod nymph, and adult stages."
  • "Larve imaju 3 para nogu, nimfe i odrasli 4, s tim sto nimfe nemaju polne organe."

agree  Mira Stepanovic: da, iako nas 'oktopod' asocira na hobotnicu :) to je izraz za sva bića koja imaju 4 para nogu/pipaka; i ja mislim da je typo u pitanju
