The biology of the pyralid Corcyra cephalonica was studied under controlled conditions in the laboratory. At a constant temperature of 30 degrees C, oviposition was influenced by relative humidity, an average of 148.9 eggs/female being laid at 70% RH, compared with 131.8 eggs at 50% RH. More eggs were retained in the ovaries of dead females at the lower relative humidity. Maize, rice and groundnuts were preferred to cowpea and cocoa for egg deposition.
