Life History and Habits

Because of their rather secretive habits little is known of the life history of diplurans. They are found in damp habitats, for example, leaf litter, under stones and logs, and in soil. The campodeids are herbivorous, but other Diplura are carnivorous, catching prey with their forceps (modified cerci) or with their maxillae. Like male springtails, male diplurans deposit stalked spermatophores but make no attempt to attract females to them. The eggs are laid in groups in a chamber dug by the female. In some species the female guards the eggs and young. Development is slow and molting (up to 30 times in Campodea) continues through life.
