As a new insecticide,less information about the aquatic biological toxicity of DMAH [N-(2,4-dimethylphenyl)-N'-methylamidine hydrochloride]is known.Acute 96h static bioassays were conducted with Oryzias latipes to assess the toxicity of DMAH and the influence of environ- mental factors.The results indicated that,at 23℃,the 24h,48h and 96h LC50 are 14.6 mg/L,13. 06 mg/L and 12.39 mg/L,respectively,the safe concentration (SC)of DMAH to Oryzias latipes is 1.16-1.32 mg/L.The changes of temperature,pH value and hardness of water will significantly influence the toxicity of DMAH to fish.
