dc.description.abstractOf last larval instar Indian-meal moths, Plodia interpunctella (Hubner), males contain slightly more total neutral lipid per gram live weight than do females. The qualitative composition of the various neutral fractions is similar in both sexes. During the pupal period, the female catabolizes considerably more triglyceride than the male, resulting in a much lower triglyceride content in the newly emerged adult female. There is an almost equal rate of lipid utilization in both sexes during the first three days of adult life.en_US
