Abstract

Aspects of the biology of Mallada handschini (Navás) were investigated in the Pietermaritzburg area of South Africa. Rearings were conducted under conditions approximating those in nature. The dur­ation of the egg stage for M. handschini was compared to those of Suarius squamosa (Tjeder) and Mallada baronissa (Navás). These durations were found to be 8,1, 8,6 and 6,9 days respectively. The duration of larval stages of M. handschini were found to vary according to diet, although larval diet had no significant effect on the duration of the pupal stage.
