For males, the duration of development of the prepupal and pupal stages was determined by checking for exuviae pushed to the end of the tubular tests (Chong et al.
The duration of the embryonic stage, as well as the durations and viabilities of the larval (first, second and third instars), prepupal, pupal and adult forms of the chrysopid were evaluated.
For instance, in this study the weight of the larva was recorded soon after ecdysis whilst Radwan and LOvei (1983) weighed them after every 2-3 days interval till prepupal stage.
The development of newly hatched larvae was monitored on fresh host plant cultivars foliages, which renewed every day until they dead or reached the prepupal stage.
The DNA puff gene BhC4-1 of Bradysia hygida is specifically transcribed in early prepupal salivary glands of Drosophila melanogaster.
Parasitized host eggs exposed to insecticide at pupal stage yielded the lowest percentage of emergence followed by eggs treated at larval and prepupal stages, especially on C.
The fourth-instar larval form was selected because it is the last prepupal instar, with the highest survival rate among all the larval instars and the lowest likelihood of being consumed by a predator because of its maximum size.
Diplolepis overwinter in a prepupal stage; they are freezing-intolerant and develop cryoprotectants that lower their supercooling points (Williams e t al.
Data recorded were larval weight at 8, 10 and 12 d; pupal weight at 24 h after pupation; number of days to reach prepupal and pupal stage transformed to development rate (1/number of days) to linearize the relationship; survival percentage to Day 12 of larval growth, to the prepupal period, and to the pupal stage.
Females pass through three larval stadia before becoming adults, while males pass through two larval stadia, then prepupal and pupal stages before emerging as winged adults.
Rhythmical bursting that was similar to the previously described pupal motor pattern (4) was recorded from prepupal and early pupal preparations.
Most of the total difference in developmental time observed in selection resulted from changes in the duration of the prepupal period, rather than the time spent in pupa.
For example, small, newly hatched individuals are often encountered with empty guts (perhaps they have not yet begun to feed) as are very large individuals that cease feeding prior to pupation (Gillott 1980) - for example, many large, prepupal R.
