Synchronized, mass-emergences of a yucca moth, Prodoxus y-inversus (Lepidoptera: Prodoxidae), after 16 and 17 years in diapause


Oecologia (Berlin): 814: 490-493
Synchronized, mass-emergences of a yucca moth, Prodoxus y-inversus (Lepidoptera: Prodoxidae), after 16 and 17 years in diapause
In studies in Nevada in 1985 and 1986, over 180 adults of Prodoxus y-inversus were observed to eclose from Yucca baccata from cocoons of the 1969 generation.
