Observations on growth in larvae of Plodia interpunctella Hubn



Observations on growth in larvae of Plodia interpunctella Hubn



Ann Appl Biol 20(2): 297-307



Isolated larvae were maintained at 21[degree] C. and fed on walnut. Of 74 larvae reaching maturity, 10 had 5, 52 had 6, and 12 had 7 stadia, The number of larval stadia was associated with amount of growth at ecdysis, larvae increasing considerably in size at each ecdysis having fewer stadia than those increasing only slightly. The total duration of larval life was associated with the number of stadia, 5-stadia larvae tending to complete larval development in less time than 6- and 7-stadia larvae. Prolongation of the final stage occurred most frequently in 7-stadia larvae and was associated with failure to attain imaginal development, Rapid growth was associated with the vigour necessary to pass successfully the several phases of metamorphosis.
