Temperature effects on the gonotrophic cycle of Culicoides variipennis (Diptera: Ceratopogonidae).


The duration of oogenesis and time to oviposition after blood feeding was studied in Culicoides variipennis held at constant laboratory temperatures. As assessed by daily dissection of ovaries, the time required for greater than or equal to 80% of females to complete egg development at 13, 17, 21, 27, 30 and 34 degrees C was 10, 5, 4, 3, 2 and 2 days… (More)
