Abstract: Age and sex dependent changes of total lipid and total fatty acid amounts in A. obtectus Say, 1931 (Coleoptera: Bruchidae) adults under three different temperatures were examined. The experiments were carried out under laboratory conditions at 15, 20 and 30±2 ºC and % 65±5 relative humidity. Total lipid amounts in all temperatures decreased in parallel with the increase in age and temperature in both sexes. Total fatty acid amounts increased in parallel with the increase in temperature in general. On the other hand, total fatty acid amounts first increased and then decreased with age.
