The life cycles of X. diversicaudatum and X. index were compared under two temperature regimes. For both species under both temperature regimes, peak egg laying occurred during the summer months. Total populations reached their maximum in autumn and their lowest point in spring. Temperature affected the time of onset of egg production in X. index; total populations for both species were generally greater at higher temperature. Total populations of X. index were higher than those of X. diversicaudatum under both temperature regimes, probably due mainly to the greater proportion of adult females in the total population of the former species at the critical egg-laying period. X. index survived low winter temperatures including freezing, and subsequently attained high population levels.
