Abstract:
Background and Objective: Larvae of the genus Cethosia is known associate with plants of the family Passifloraceae. The aim of this study was to obtain preliminary data on the life cycle of Cethosia hypsea that reared on Adenia macrophylla. Methodology: The immature stages (egg, larvae and pupae) were reared in the laboratory condition at temperature ranging between 26-30°C and relative humidity of 65-75%. Results: The incubation period of egg was 6-7 days. There are five instars stage of larva, the duration of instar 1st, 2nd, 3rd, 4th and 5th are 3, 3, 3, 3 and 4 days, respectively. Total larval phase is about 16 days, pupae formed after 1 day of the pre pupa period. Pupae period is about 7 days. Conclusion: The larvae of C. hypsea passed through five instars. The total development time from egg to adult eclosion ranged between 30-31 days. The life cycle duration of C. hypsea was about 34-35 days. This is the first study describing life cycle of Chetosia in Indonesia and this species capable of producing multiple generations per year.
