Table 2 For each species: time of development in days, average number of eggs per female per day, number of hatched eggs per female per month, and percentage of viable eggs

From: Triatominae: does the shape change of non-viable eggs compromise species recognition?

Species Developmental time (days) Eggs laid/female/daya Eggs hatched % Viability
P. c. 30.15 ± 1.13 4.79 (144) 114 79.17
P. h. 28.99 ± 1.38 2.78 (83) 35 42.17
T. c. 25.00 ± 0.79 3.77 (113) 99 87.61
R. e. 18.22 ± 0.94 3.71 (111) 81 72.97
