An estimation of the predatory efficiency of the nymphs of five coexisting odonate species Aeshna flavifrons, Coenagrion kashmirum, Ischnura forcipata, Rhinocypha ignipennis and Sympetrum durum using the fourth-instar larvae of Culex quinquefasciatus as prey, was made under laboratory and semi-field conditions. The daily feeding rate varied among the odonate species, at laboratory conditions. The mean number of IV instars Cx. quinquefasciatus larvae killed per day, ranged between 14 and 64 (64… CONTINUE READING
