For a number of years the writer has been interested in the Pentatomidae, more recently from the standpoint of their bionomics. Further investigation has, as usual, served to emphasize how little we really know about this relatively uneconomic group. This seems to be particularly true concerning the eggs, hence the present effort on the part of the writer to make available such data as he has been able to assemble up to the present. The greater part of the material in this paper constitutes a portion of the writer's thesis presented for the doctorate.
