A description of the last larval instar (based on exuviae) of Globicornis (Hadrotoma) emarginata (Gyllenhal, 1808) (Coleoptera: Dermestidae) is presented. Morphological characters of Globicornis larvae are characterized and discussed, including antenna, epipharynx, mandibula, maxilla, ligula with labial palpi, hastiseta, spiciseta, legs, terga, and condition of the antecostal suture. Structural differences of mature larvae of the following Globicornis species are compared and summarized: Globicornis (Hadrotoma) corticalis (Eichhoff, 1863), Globicornis (Hadrotoma) emarginata (Gyllenhal, 1808) and Globicornis (Globicornis) nigripes (Fabricius, 1792).
