Abstract:

An experiment was performed on ovipositonal preference of females of Anar butterflies (Deudorix epijarbas) under laboratory condition in the Division of Entomology, SKUAST-K, Shalimar during 2012. Studies revealed that adult female laid eggs on flowers, fruits and also on stalk and leaves within the vicinity of fruiting parts. More number of eggs (63.75) were laid on 30-40 days old fruits with a percentage (52.46%) mainly on calyx cup followed by 19.00 laid on matured fruits, which accounts for 5.63 per cent. Other plant parts viz., flower buds, fully opened flowers, leaves, stalk and fruit let stage were least preferred by D. epijarbas adults for oviposittion.
