(1) In Pholidoptera griseoaptera the egg stage lasts from late summer of year 1, through year 2, and hatching occurs in the spring of year 3. Diapause occurs in the whole embryo, normally towards the end of year 2. (2) Most of the embryonic development occurs during the summer of year 2 and is dependent on a heat input of at least 800 day-degrees C above 11 degrees C. (3) There is a reasonable correlation between distribution and accumulated temperature.
