Longevity of the army cutworm, Chorizagrolis auxiliaris (Grote), following mating was inversely related to temperature. Females lived longer than males at all temperatures and food increased longevity of both sexes. Oviposition occurred at 70º and 55º but not lit 32. None of the variables tested affected total fecundity hut oviposition was completed sooner at 70º than at 55º in sand as an oviposition site vs. paper toweling and by unfed than by fed moths. Starvation preceding oviposition did not effect. fecundity but speeded completion of oviposition when moths were returned to favorable conditions.
