Several hundred Chrrysops fiavida Wied. larvae were collected in the Delta area of Mississippi in 1955-56. Some were from around the roots of an emergent sedge, others were from around sedge in habitats that were dry for more than 6 months. Adults emerged in the laboratory in every month except August, September, and November. The average pupal period was 5 days. Submerged larvae readily fed on bloodworms in the laboratory but were observed to take no other food. Larvae in the laboratory were alive after being confined below water for 21 days.
