Abstract

1. 1. The total lipid and the phospholipid of the house cricket, Acheta domesticus (L.), were studied during its entire life cycle. 2. 2. Total lipid decreased during the egg and early larval stages, then rose steadily during the remainder of larval life. Total lipid in adult males gradually declined with age, while in the females the total lipid decreased during the first 3 weeks, then increased slightly. 3. 3. Phospholipid remained more or less contant during the entire life cycle. Phosphatidylcholine and sphingomyelin showed cyclical patterns of change during the life cycle, whereas phosphatidylethanolamine was constant during the egg stage and, at a higher level, constant during postembryonic life. © 1970.
