Momordica cochinsinensis, a host of Dacus cucurbitae Coquillett


Momordica cochinsinensis, a host of Dacus cucurbitae Coquillett



Entomologists' Newsletter 6(3): 29-30



Dacus cucurbitae Coq., which is known to attack many cucurbits and other plants such as chilli guava and papaya, was found for the first time on Momordica cochinchinensis (which is used as a vegetable in many parts of Bihar and Uttar Pradesh) in the Champaran district of Bihar. Infested fruits, which were yellowish and soft, each contained 6-10 larvae, which had consumed most of the interior of the fruits. The mature larvae jumped out of the fruits and pupated in the soil in the normal manner.
