The given size is measured from the head to the end of the abdomen, without the wings.
Quotation of the Lifespan
The lifespan is given in month and has the following definition:
overall-age ("time between hatching and imago" + "lifespan after the last molting")
Example: 9 (2 + 7) month lifespan
overall-age = 9 month
time between hatching and imago = 2 month
lifespan after the last molting = 7 month
adult: 3 months
adult: 8 months
Morphologically differences between male and female.
L5 and above: just by counting the abdominal- segments (8 segments)
adult: smaller than female, wings longer than the abdomen
L5 and above: just by counting the abdominal- segments (6 segments)
adult: more compact than males, wings cover the abdomen
