carbon monoxide in walnut shells

I'm fascinated by the idea of Drosophila (what species please ?) diapausing 
inside walnut shells.  I know of several drosophilid species that use nuts 
as larval substrates but don't recall hearing of diapausing like this before.

My guess is that elevatd CO is due to incomplete oxidation during decay.  I 
imagine that the CO2 is similarly raised - is it ?
