Abstract: 1. Developmental costs of rapid growth in terms of increased fluctuating asymmetry are expected to contribute to the widespread occurrence of growth rates below the physiological maximum, but have rarely been demonstrated. Here, these costs are studied for the first time in an invertebrate, the damselfly Lestes viridis, using a rearing experiment where early- and late-hatched larvae of both sexes were reared at decreasing or permanent water levels.
