Abstract:The larval period was 2 days longer when larval Manduea sexta (Johannson) were reared on tobacco leaves than when they were reared on artificial diet; about 1/3 more by weight of tobacco leaves was eaten than of artificial diet. Weights of larvae at the end of the 5th stadium, and resulting pupae were about the same whether the larvae were reared on tobacco leaves or on artificial diet.
