A study of the life history and secondary production of Caenis latipennis, a caenid
mayfly, was conducted on Honey Creek, OK. from August 1999 through September
2000. The first instar nymph was described. Nymphs were separated into five
development classes. Laboratory egg and nymph development rates, emergence,
fecundity, voltinism, and secondary production were analyzed. C. latipennis eggs and
nymphs take 132 and 1709 degree days to develop. C. latipennis had an extended
emergence with five peaks. Females emerged, molted, mated, and oviposited in an
estimated 37 minutes. Mean fecundity was 888.4 291.9 eggs per individual (range 239
-1576). C. latipennis exhibited a multivoltine life cycle with four overlapping
generations. Secondary production was 6,052.57 mg/m2/yr.
