Thread subject: :: from egg , larva to adult

Posted by BubikolRamios on 31-05-2010 03:07

So, on my site there could be three images of same species (of any insect) in stages of egg,larva,adult
Then opening one of those images would diplay all three dates of observation.

Is that ok, that is I belive in general all three stages of same species can appear on same day on same location ?

Depending on the species biology, you can have all stages at one location at the same time. The most logical way would be continuous generations (as you can see, for example, in many Drosophilidae), but even with a single generation in a year it can be possible. At the time that the last specimens of the 'generation 0' are in the final larval stage, the first larvae to go through pupation may have already emerged, mated and oviposited to start the 'generation 1'.

Thaks for your toughts.
Will stick to tooltip: 'date species observed'

Example (at bottom):

A liittle strange at first , showing date of adult and larva together with image of adult only, but when tooltip readed I think it is logical.
