Females of this species live only 2-3 hours as adults, and within this short space of time they must mate and lay their eggs. To make matters even more precarious, they must lay their eggs on red algal mats that are exposed only during the lowest ebbing of the spring tide. , at about IS-day inter­ vals). Therefore, the life cycle of these insects must coordinate with the lunar cycle as well as the daily tidal rhythms such that the flies emerge from their pupal cases during the few days of the spring tide and at the correct hour for its ebb (Beck 1980; Neumann and Spindler 1991).

First, it allows the egg to comple te its second meiotic division, which pro­ v ides the egg with a haplOid pronucl e us .
