ISSN/ISBN: 0036-7575

The most important pests of arabica coffee on the island of Sao Tome are the pyralid Prophantis smaragdina (Btlr.) and the tortricid Cryptophlebia colivora (Meyr.), which has not been recorded on coffee before. The larvae of both species feed on the berries, and together can cause 80% damage. In the laboratory at 24 deg C and 90-100% RH, the duration of the egg, larval, prepupal and pupal period for both species was 5-6, 15, 3 and 10 days, respectively, and the life-cycle lasted about 40 days.
