The developmental biology of Corcyra cephalonica (Stainton) (Lepidoptera: Pyralidae) was studied. Male and female larval developmental period, larval instars, pupal and total developmental were recorded. Both male and female larvae passed 7 to 8 instars. However, most of them passed 7 instars. Male larvae took an average of 31.3±1.8 days and female larvae completed development in 32.5±3 days. Male completed pupal period in an average of 9.3±1.1 days and female pupae took an average of 11.3±0.94 days to complete its development. This study revealed, the longer developmental period of females as compare with the males. Females completed total developmental period from egg to adult, ranged from 42 to 55 days with an average of 48.9 days. Males took 42 to 51 with an average 45.3 days for completion of total development at 27±1.6 0C and 46 ± 5 per cent.

Keywords: Corcyra cephalonica, Developmental period, Larval instars
