Anarsia lineatella Zeller (Lepidoptera: Gelechiidae): age-related fecundity


Abstract: In order to understand the influence of delayed matings in orchards where matingdisruption is applied, bioassays on the fecundity of Anarsia lineatella in relation to different ageof mating have been carried out. Studies showed that increasing the age of males, no clearinfluence on the number of eggs laid can be noticed, while egg hatching is drastically reduced(with seven days old males there is a peak of oviposition but hatching is slightly more than 10%).
