Abstract

The life history and colony composition of Cylindrocaulus patalis (Lewis, 1883) was investigated in Miyazaki Prefecture, Kyushu, southwest Japan, from May 2001 to October 2002. Cylindrocaulus patalis lives in family groups in galleries excavated in rotten wood. Adults were active from April to October and appeared to hibernate from December to March. The breeding season spanned June to August, the hot time of the year. Most observed colonies included a male and female pair year-round. Each pair raised only one offspring per year. Adult off-spring appeared to stay with their parents until the following spring; some stayed until the next breeding season.
