Abstract

Oviposition behaviour of three Indian Elattoneura spp. is described and discussed. Endophytic oviposition in dry rigid substrates away from water by the endemic E. nigerrima and E. tetrica is recorded; this differs from the typical recorded use of submerged vegetation substrates in the genus. Contrasting behavioural observation of oviposition in E. campioni is also discussed.
