Differences of oviposition preference and survival rate of 2 skipper butterflies parnara guttata and pelopidas mathias lepidoptera hesperiidae on rice plant and cogon grass

Differences of oviposition preference and survival rate of 2 skipper butterflies parnara guttata and pelopidas mathias lepidoptera hesperiidae on rice plant and cogon grass

Seasonal fluctuation of egg density in P. guttata and P. mathias was investigated in paddy fields [Japan]. Oviposition in paddy fields and farmland and oviposition preference of female adults in a field cage were investigated. Survival rate and mortality factors were examined on various combinations of 2 host plants, rice and cogon grass, and 2 habitats, wet and dry lands. Favorability of the rice plant in paddy fields was compared between 2 spp.

When reared in the greenhouse, Pelopidas mathias, whose larvae defoliate rice in the Philippines, laid 23 times fewer eggs than field-collected females held under the same conditions. Thus, adult emergence and mating/oviposition cages may have to...

Life history traits of Parnara guttata guttata hatched from large-sized and small-sized eggs were compared. Eggs were grouped into two sizes, larger than 0.19 mm3 (L group) and smaller than 0.16 mm3 (S group). Larvae from these groups were reared...
