Ametabolous Development

In Thysanura (and other primitive hexapods), which as adults remain wingless, the degree of change from juvenile to adult form is slight and is manifest primarily in increased body size and development of functional genitalia. Juvenile and adult apterygotes inhabit the same ecological niche, and the insects continue to grow and molt after reaching sexual maturity.
