Laral populations of the 2 species were studied in a lentic freshwater environment. 13 larval instars were recognized from plots of head width and length of wig-pads.Density, populations dynamics, age, structure, flying period and winter quiescence were analysed. Both uni- and semivoltine individuals were found. Microhabitat differences were found beteen the 2 spp, T. risi preferring Pistia stratiotes and Hydrocotyle ranunculoides, whereas E. attala preferred lemnaceas. A life table was constructed for T. risi, which showed mortality rate maxima at hatching and at 10 and 23 months.
