Abstract: The data presented suggest temporal differences between reproductive maturity and sexual maturity in males as well as females of Ceratitis capitata. Males were reproductively mature near the time they eclose though they were not sexually mature until 48 h later. Females, on the other hand, were sexually mature at 48 h but were not reproductively mature until 4 days old. Thus, in comparision, sexual maturity in both sexes was reached at about the same time while reproductive maturity differed by about 4 days.
