Development, Fecundity, and Longevity of Leschenaultia adusta, a Tachinid Parasite of the Salt-Marsh Caterpillar 1 2 3 [link]Paper  doi  abstract   bibtex   
The tachinid parasite Leschenaultia adusta (Loew) developed from egg to adult in the salt-marsh caterpillar, Estigmene acrea (Drury) in a maximum of 89.5±2.8 days at 15°C and a minimum of 17.6±0.8 days at 30°C. Parasitized larvae did not survive at 35°C. One female produced 4572 eggs, whereas the mean was 1939±1365 for al females tested. At 26.7±1.1°C, the mean preoviposition period was 7.6±1.0 days, the mean days of oviposition 9.1±6.5, and the mean longevity 17.0±6.8 days.
