To analyze the relationship between female body size and lifetime fecundity (LF) in Monochamus urussovii (Fischer), 17 pairs of adults were reared on Picea jezoensis (Sieb. et Zucc.) Carrière twig sections and were allowed to oviposit on Abies sachalinensis (Fr. Schmidt) Masters bolts at 25 °C and 16:8 h light:dark. The means of life span and Lf were 42.5 days and 28.2 eggs for fertile and sterile females combined, respectively.
