Caloric reserves in salt marsh deer flies, Chrysops fuliginosus (Diptera: Tabanidae)

Caloric reserves in salt marsh deer flies, Chrysops fuliginosus (Diptera: Tabanidae)

Annals of the Entomological Society of America, 785: 594-599

The behaviour of adults of Chrysops fuliginosus was observed near a salt marsh in Milford, Connecticut, during 1978, 1979 and 1982-83. Males and females were analysed by a chemical test to quantify available caloric reserves in mating, resting and blood-seeking individuals. Mean available energy reserves were highest in males (mean = 2.7 cal/mg) and females (mean = 2.5 cal/mg) captured in copula.
