A virus of black beetle, Heteronychus arator (F.) (Coleoptera: Scarabaeidae)



A virus of black beetle, Heteronychus arator (F.) (Coleoptera: Scarabaeidae)



New Zealand Journal of Zoology 2(2): 233-236



In a survey in the northern part of the North Island of New Zealand in 1973-74 for pathogens of Heteronychus arator (F.), high mortality was observed in a population in a pasture of kikuyu grass (Pennisetum clandestinum). Several pathogens were isolated from larvae and adults, including a species of Protozoa (possible Adelina sp.), a rickettsia, a fungus (Beauveria sp.), a nematode (Neoaplectana sp.) and a small RNA virus.
