The Holometabola, also known as the Endopterygota, are characterized by complete metamorphosis in which a larva hatches from an egg, undergoes several discrete growth increments, eventually becomes a pupa, typically the resting stage, and ends as an emergent adult.
The Endopterygota include several species of Mecopterida and Neuroptera.
