Study on the bionomics of Thitarodes armoricanus Oberthur


Acta Entomologica Sinica 31(4): 395-400
Study on the bionomics of Thitarodes armoricanus Oberthur
The biology of the hepialid Thitarodes armoricanus, a host of the entomogenous fungus Cordyceps sinensis which is used in traditional medicine in China, was studied in Gansu in 1983-85. At 11.4 degrees C, the egg stage lasted 32-47 days and egg hatchability was 93%. At the same temperature the larval stage lasted for 4-5 years, the pupal stage for 35-40 days and adult stage for 3-12 (a mean of 7) days.
