Development and reproduction of the sycamore lace bug, Corythucha ciliata, were investigated under different temperature regimes. Duration of development from egg to pre-adult of the sycamore lace bug measured seven temperatures ranged from 54.0 days at 18$^{\circ}$C to 17.9 days at 33$^{\circ}$C. Development was not successful at 15$^{\circ}$C and 35$^{\circ}$C. Developmental zero point and total effective temperature for development of egg, nymphal, and complete development were 1 1 .O, 10.9, ll.l$^{\circ}$C and 150.3, 230.6, 376.1 degree-days, respectively. Longevities of adult females varied to temperature from 51.8 days at 18$^{\circ}$C to 17.2 days at 33$^{\circ}$C. The average fecundity per female was greater at 25$^{\circ}$C and 28$^{\circ}$C compared with at other temperatures. The intrinsic rate of natural increase (r,) and net reproduction rate (R,) were highest at 28$^{\circ}$C as 0.170 and 73.25, respectively. As a result, optimum ranges of temperature for C. ciliata growth were between 25$^{\circ}$C and 28$^{\circ}$C.
