MURILLO, L. Ricardo  and  NISHIDA, Kenji. Life history of Manataria maculata (Lepidoptera: Satyrinae) from Costa Rica. Rev. biol. trop [online]. 2003, vol.51, n.2, pp.463-470. ISSN 0034-7744.

The life history and early stages of the satyrine butterfly Manataria maculata are described and illustrated from Costa Rica. Eggs are laid on Lasiacis sp. (Panicoideae), a new non-bamboo host plant for the genus Manataria. The larval stage varied from 23 to 28 days, and the pupal duration was approximately 12 days when reared on Bambusa vulgaris and Guadua angustifolia in captivity at 23-24°C.

Keywords : Bambusa vulgaris; Guadua angustifolia; Lasiacis; Manataria; Natural History; Neotropical; Patelloa xanthura; Tachinidae.
