The mode of prey detection is described for stage IV Coccinella transversoguttata larvae. The prolegs and possibly the head and mouthparts are more important than the stemmata for detecting prey. Prey are probably first noted by touch, but contact chemoreception, especially by the mouthparts, may also occur.
