Age and rate of development of the preadult of the Mediterranean fruit fly, Ceratitis capitata (Wiedemann), can be estimated from its eye color by comparison with any color chart that has been standardized with the Hunter colorimeter. For >999 preadults excised from puparia on 1, 2, 3, or 4 d before eclosion (DBE), approximate values of mean eye color (J) were 37.50, 23.02, 7.52, or 2.13, respectively. Corresponding rates of pupal development were −5.17, −9.95, −14.73, and −19.50 J per day on 4, 3, 2, or 1 DBE.
