Experiments with the virus Rhabdionvirus oryctes against the coconut palm rhinoceros beetles Oryctes rhinoceros and Scapanes australis grossepunctatus in New Guinea



Experiments with the virus Rhabdionvirus oryctes against the coconut palm rhinoceros beetles Oryctes rhinoceros and Scapanes australis grossepunctatus in New Guinea



Journal of Invertebrate Pathology 22(1): 70-74



Rhabdionvirus oryctes, originally discovered in larvae of the coconut palm Dynastid Oryctes rhinoceros (L.) in Malaysia, proved to be also pathogenic to second- and early third-instar larvae of Scapanes australis grossepunctatus Sternb., a Dynastid pest of palms in New Guinea. Mortality of Scapanes larvae occurred within 13-15 days of infection. Some older third-instar larvae may be resistant.
