Correlation Between Pupal Weight and Fecundity of Catolaccus grandis (Burks)

S. M. Greenberg, J. A. Morales-Ramos, and E. G. King


A significant correlation (R2 = 0.944, F = 1090.8) was found between weight of female pupae of Catolaccus grandis (Burks) and total fecundity during the first 30 days of oviposition. The use of this correlation to assess quality of mass reared females of C. grandis is discussed.
