Development and survival of the immature stages of Sirex noctilio F. are dependent on active growth of the symbiotic fungus Amylostereum areolatum. In laboratory and field studies in Tasmania, suppression of fungal growth by excess moisture or temperature prolonged embryogenesis so that eclosion might be delayed until 300 days after oviposition in the base of some attacked trees (Pinus radiata), as compared with 15-30 days in warmer and drier tops of the same trees.
