A clear relationship was observed between sex and developmental time in two normal strains of the onion fly Hylemya antiqua (Meigen). The difference between the two sexes manifests itself during the embryonic, the larval as well as the pupal stage. Quick developed pupae from quick developed larvae from quick developed embryos gave primarily males. The contribution to the sex ratio distortion in absolute sense was the largest by the pupal stage and the lowest by the larval and embryonic stages. The distortion in each stage is independent from the distortion in the preceding stage.
