ABSTRACT The life history of Anaspides tasmaniae inhabiting small subalpine pools in Tasmania is reported. Both sexes normally live 4.5-5 years, and experience three breeding periods. Females increase in length at a faster rate than males. The ability of A. tasmaniae to survive and remain active out of water for several days in conditions of high humidity may have important survival value if pools become dry during summer. Temperature tolerance tests using both constant and cycling temperatures gave 96 h LT50 values between 21.4°C and 22.7°C. Although surface water temperatures may exceed these limits for several days, cooler water at the bottom of pools and under overhanging banks will enable many animals to survive heat wave conditions.
