A nymph is the immature form of an insect that undergoes incomplete metamorphosis. A nymph differs from a larva in that a nymph becomes an adult without first becoming a pupa and in that a nymph typically resembles a smaller, wingless version of an adult, whereas a larva can differ radically from the corresponding adult form.
