Pupal Stage of Dyscinetus morator (Fabricius)


Recommended Posts



A picture of Dyscinetus morator pupa. Before I knew... it is already ready to emerge...

I collected multiple adults back in May-June, and it has only been about three months since I spotted few larvae crawling in containers.
A sole survivor decided to emerge already...lol. This is second year in a row that I haven't separated any eggs or larvae from each other. Maybe they are cannibalistic?

Also, another surprising factor is that their exuvia is being left out like how it is done by many Rutelines.
