It was realized over 100 years ago (Bishopp, 1913), that Stomoxys calcitrans (L.) was an insect of veterinary importance. Since then, however, very little work has been done on its life-history. The object of this investigation was to ascertain the number of instars and their duration, and to do this with any degree of accuracy a study of the morphological development of the cephalopharyngeal sclerites seemed to be the only reliable method.
