Résumé

In rural areas cocoons of overwintering Hyalophora cecropia spum close to the ground are opened and the pupae eaten by small mammals, but in urban areas, where cecropia populations are much larger, the cocoons are almost never opened by mammals. Peromyscus leucopus noveboracensis and P. maniculatus bairdii are abundant in rural areas, but are largely replaced by Mus musculus in urban areas. In laboratory experiments P. l. noveboracensis invariably opened cecropia cocoons and ate the pupae. P. m. bairdii were slower to open cecropia cocoons and two of twelve did not open one at all. M. musculus, on the other hand, never opened cecropia cocoons although they gnawed the silk and ate uncovered pupae. Cocoons opened in the laboratory by the two species of Peromyscus cannot be distinguished from each other or from cocoons opened in the field.
