Résumé

Anatalanta aptera is a wingless fly which lives in subantarctic islands, particularly in sea bird colonies. Developmental patterns of supercooling capacity were studied in an experimental population reared at 5°C and fed ad libitum. Mean supercooling points of the eggs, second and third instar larvae, pupae, teneral and mature adults were ?28.0°C, ?10.8°C, ?8.8°C, 17.6°C, ?16.6°C and ?8.2°C respectively. Low mean supercooling points were found for inactive stages (eggs, pupae) and, unexpectedly among Diptera, teneral adults. Mature adults had a combination of low supercooling ability, high lipid content and physogastry. The results are compared with those obtained in winged species from other families of Diptera.
