The development of the eggs in Culex theileri Theobald females exposed to various constant temperatures between 12ï¿½C and 36ï¿½C was examined. Development took place only between 12ï¿½C and 33ï¿½C. The developmental zero was 9ï¿½C. A basis was set for the prediction of the developmental rate of C. theileri eggs exposed to a given constant temperature. Maximum oviposition took place at 24ï¿½C.
