Abstract

The life cycle of Compsobata univitta (Walker, 1849) is described. Larvae are saprophagous, feeding on moist, decomposing vegetation. Data on the habitat, distribution, phenology, behavior, and feeding habits are presented. Morphological features of the egg, three larval instars, and puparium are figured and described.
