Thermal requirements for development of life stages in the rednecked peanutworm, Stegasta bosqueella (Chambers), were determined. Embryonic, larval, and pupal threshold temperatures were 11.7°C (53°F), 11.0°C (52°F), and 12.2°C (54°F), respectively. Mean C day accumulations required for completion of life stages were: 66.5 - egg, 156.0 - larva (to prepupa), 25.1 - prepupa, and 94.2 - pupa.
