Abstract

It had been originally intended to study both the chromosome cytology and the reproductive behavior of several of the poorly known, montane species of the insect family Chrysopidae at the Station during the summer of 1969. The first of these undertakings worked out rather well, but several unanticipated problems arose in connection with the study of the reproductive behavior which made the immediate results of this portion of the study somewhat less satisfactory. In addition to these areas of investigation, a successful effort was made to secure, through rearings, larval-adult associations and such items of ecological information as the habitat distributions of the different species and, through a microscopic study of gut contents, of their food specificities. Living representatives of all species encountered were shipped to my laboratory at the University of Illinois and additional, experimental studies of these species are now in progress. Project Number 164.
