While Western Pond Turtle nesting sites can be as far as 400 m from water (Storer 1930; Holland 1991a, 1991b; Rathbun and others 1992), females in our study moved on average 24.4 m (s = 17.5 m) to oviposit
on south-facing slopes with mean aspects of 134[degrees] (s = 31.9[degrees]).
citri females oviposit
exclusively on flush, rather than mature leaves or stems.
The larvae of aphidophagous hoverflies are peripatetic and active predator of aphids that's why the female prefer to oviposit
near aphid colonies (Sadeghi and Gilbert, 2000).
Low flow areas of streams provide stable substrate (Bispo et al., 2004) and leaf material for larval consumption and case building, thus is an ideal location for adult females to oviposit
and larvae to inhabit.
Bark beetles are known for attacking diseased, weakened or recently dead trees to which they are attracted, and for making galleries in the tree trunk inside which they develop, breed, and oviposit
(RAFFA et al., 2015).
valliceps congregate in temporary ponds to mate and oviposit
, as we observed the night of the discovery, with several tens of individuals of both species congregated, and S.
We consider it atypical for females to oviposit
far from the water (i.e., not on riparian vegetation or riparian substrates on or adjacent to the water).
Most studied Agathidinae species oviposit
into special organs (nerve ganglia) , but some, including T.
This result is in agreement whith that observed by Daniel (2014), in that females of Rhagoletis cerasi(L.) (Diptera: Tephritidae) changed their oviposition and spent more time trying to oviposit
on fruits treated with rapeseed oil and Naturalis-L[R], a biocontrol product which contains oil as formulant.
Wound myiasis is initiated when female flies oviposit
on or near a wound ([less than or equal to] 300 larvae/wound).
Notoaeschna sagittata is a riverine species and the female is known to oviposit
while totally submerged at rapids (Theischinger and Hawking 2006).
citri females were released into the cage and allowed to oviposit
for 4 days and then removed from the cage.
