litura till pupation or death upon challenge with different viral doses.
The only caterpillar that did not attack its associated pupa died prior to pupation. In the field experiment, we found no evidence of intraspecific predation; all pupae were accounted for and intact.
Yellow sticky cards in the traps were retrieved weekly and examined under 20 x magnification to count cranberry tipworms and parasitoids that emerged from pupation sites in the soil.
The percentages of the pupation were significantly affected by all concentrations applied as shown in Table (2) and illustrated in Figure (3).
At the pre-pupal stage, sawdust was added to the beaker for pupation. The emerged adults were paired (male, female) and kept in a muslin covered 1 L glass jar.
Thus, to complete its life cycle they depend crucially on the body mass of larvae before pupation. Therefore, the development condition of the larva will be responsible for the characteristics of the adult.
Saw dust: It was purchased from Tandojam Aara machine, after few days the full grown larvae were pop out and drop himself into saw dust for pupation. After few days the saw dust was sieved to separate the fresh pupae.
Percent pupation, adult emergence and egg eclosion was recorded hereafter.
The data prescribed in Table 1 showed that the highest pupation % was obtained 71.33 2.34 fed on fresh aphid and lowest was recoded 55.67 2.58, when fed on dried aphid.
It inhibited the treated larvae pupation systematically with 148.7 g/ml EC50 value.
The novel abdominal appendage in male sepsid flies (Diptera: Sepsidae) has a complex evolutionary history of primary gain, loss, and regain which we explore using fluorescent microscopy to compare the size, volume, and number of cells in the histoblast cell nests that produce the appendage during pupation across six genera including an ancestral outgroup which describe evolutionary history of the appendage.
