Abstract As the temperature at which larvae of C. capitata were reared decreased from 30° to 25° to 20° the yield of pupae from eggs increased from 15% to 25% to 30% and the mean weight of pupae decreased. Within each temperature regime the weight of pupae produced on successive days declined and the fat content of those pupae varied.
