This article describes the life cycle of Pedaliodes pallantis Hewitson 1862. The species used Chusquea aff. serrulata (Poaceae: Bambusoidea) as host plant. Eggs are laid singly or up to two per leaf on the underside of the leaves. The average duration of the life cycle under laboratory conditions is 157 days at their natural altitude (3300 m). The larval and pupal morphology is similar to other described Pedaliodes.
