Hexagenia limbata; Insects--Eggs; Embryology
Hunt (19 5 3) states that temperature is an important factor influencing the rate of embryonic development of Hexagenia (mayfly) eggs. Pasvogel (1962) has reported that 46 days is the time limit Hexagenia eggs can remain dormant at temperatures slightly above freezing. It was the object of this investigation to continue this line of research and to determine the effects of temperature on the embryonic development of Hexagenia limbata eggs.
