Abstract

The life table study of Pea leaf miner, Liriomyza huidobrensis Blanchard, was conducted in laboratory of
Entomology division of Nepal Agricultural Research Council with the aim to understand the patterns in the
development, survival and mortality of pea leaf miner along with the nature of damage in laboratory condition.
The results explained that oviposition and feeding punctures were significantly higher in lower foliage than in
upper foliage level. It was observed that there was low mortality in adult stages (13.72%) compared to other life
stages (egg: 48.26%, larva: 41.17% and pupa: 27.14%, respectively). Male and female ratio was 1:1.39 with the
average of 13.60±1.53:19.00±1.84 in the laboratory condition whereas in the field condition, it was 0.98:1. The
average egg, larval, and pupal development period of L. huidobrensis recorded were 4.75±0.335; 10.08±0.238
and 12.19±0.233 days respectively. The average survival time period of male and female feeding only honey and
water was 5.78±0.86 and 3.22±0.954 days, respectively. It was concluded that the mortality trend was stage
specific and adult ovipositional and feeding preferences is more towards the older, thicker and larger lower
leaves
