Abstract/Contents:In the greenhouse in Kentucky, the eggs of Draceulacephala mollipes (Say) were deposited under the eipdermis in the midvein of maize leaves in masses of 2-9. Eggs deposited during June-October required an average of 6.5 days to hatch. Those deposited in November-January required 15.7. Nymphal development was completed in an average of 43.4 days. Increases in size of several parts of the body were determined, and the average factors are given. In field studies, three generations occurred about 6-7 weeks apart, the adult population reaching peaks during June, August, and late September and early October. Orchard grass (Dactylis glomerata) was the preferred food-plant. However, the adults were found to overwinter only in fields of bluegrass (Poa). The species proved not to be a vector of maize dwarf mosaic virus.
