Summary

The salinity tolerance of eggs and recently hatched larvae of Phryganea grandis Linné (Trichoptera) from brackish-water in the Baltic Sea was investigated. Freshly deposited eggs will not develop to hatching in salinities above 7 ‰ More mature eggs will hatch even in 20 \% but the larvae die soon after emerging. Larvae have the same tolerance range as freshly deposited eggs (distilled water to 7 \%) in accordance with the actual distribution of the species. The high tolerance of mature eggs is probably due to changes in the egg-membranes or in the jelly of the egg-masses.

Case building becomes abnormal in salinities above 10 ‰

Résumé

La tolérance de sel des oeufs et des larves récemment écloses de Phryganea grandis Linné (Trichoptera) de l'eau saumâtre de la Baltique a été examinée. Des oeufs nouvellement pondus ne se développeront pas jusqu'à éclosion dans une salinité de 7 ‰ Des oeufs plus mûrs sortiront de l'oeuf même dans une salinité de 20 \%, mais les larves meurent bientôt. Les larves ont la même limite de tolérance que des oeufs nouvellement pondus (de l'eau distillĺee de 7 \%), conformément à la distribution actuelle des espèces. La haute tolérance des oeufs mûrs est probablement conditionnée par des changements dans les membranes des oeufs ou dans la gelèe des masses d'oeufs. La construction des fourreaux devient anormale dans des salinités au-dessus de 10 ‰
