 en Larval and pupal periods of Peckia chrysostoma and Adiscochaeta ingens (diptera: sarcophagidae) reared under laboratory conditions
Marisa Vianna Ferraz

Abstract

Peckia chrysostoma obtained mean viability of 97.0+/-2.4% for
larvae and of 96.9+/-2.5% for pupae (total viability of
94.0+/-3.7%). Adiscochaeta ingens obtained mean viability of
93.0+/-7.5% for larvae and of 92.8+/-7.6% for pupae (total
viability of 86.0+/-7.3%).

P. chrysostoma obtained mean larval period of 185+/-4 hr at 18 C, of 94+/-2 hr at 27 C and of 88+/-2 hr at room temperature (range of 23 C and 29 C). A. ingens obtained mean larval period of 169+/-1 hr at 18 C, of 77+/-1 hr at 27 C and of 84+/-2 hr at room temperature.

P. chrysostoma obtained mean pupal period of 23.5+/-1.3 days at 18 C, of 12.5+/-0.7 days at 27 C and of 15.5+/-0.7 days at room temperature. A. ingens obtained mean pupal period of 33.0+/-2.2 days at 18 C, of 16.0+/-1.0 days at 27 C and of 19.0+/-1.0 days at room temperature.
