The cyprinodontid annual fish, Cynolebias bellottii Steindachner, was successfully field-reared and propagated at Riverside, California, with eggs and adult fish subjected to climatic conditions which were the reverse of those in its native habitat (Brazil, Argentina, and Uruguay). Egg production during midsummer (July-August) was appreciably less than during autumn; and during the winter embryonic development was delayed for as long as 10 months. Less than 0.1% of overwintering eggs hatched when flooded after 7½ months (24 May 1965).
