  • a These larvae are morphologically abnormal at 25°, but not at 15°.

  • b Data were derived from Gems et al. (1998). Seventy-five percent of segregants from m65/+ mothers reached adulthood, 23% formed dauers, and the remainder were a mixture of dead eggs, L1's, or unhealthy, clear-looking arrested L2's.

  • c Partial dauers, recovered within 24 hr.
