We also show the correspondence between P stages and percentage of completed pupal development. Note the considerable variation in start, duration, and end for most P stages. In addition, the different characters used for staging are not synchronous between pupae, making it difficult to have an absolute reference of developmental timing. 5% 100% Onset of eye pigmentation Eyes yellow Eyes darken to amber Eyes and ocelli red Head bristles become visible Thorax bristles become visible Wings gray Wings black Meconium appears Eclosion P1 P2 P3 P4i P4ii P5i P5ii P6 P7 P8 P9 P11i P12i P12ii P14 P15i 0 10 20 30 40 50 60 70 80 90 100 hours Bainbridge, S.

Their pigmentation darkens progressively over the next few hours following emergence. Upon eclosion the fly wings are neatly folded and are gray in wild-type flies. In the next 30 min, the wings unfold. For the next 2 h, the wings remain fragile and are held at a slight angle away from the body.
