The cassava shoot fly, Neosilba perezi (Romeo and Ruppel) (Diptera: Lonchaeidae)



The cassava shoot fly, Neosilba perezi (Romeo and Ruppel) (Diptera: Lonchaeidae)



Entomology Circular, Division of Plant Industry, Florida Department of Agriculture and Consumer Services (187): 2



Notes are given on the economic importance, morphology and geographic distribution of Neosilba perezi (Romero & Ruppel), a pest of cassava in Florida since its accidental introduction in about 1960; the larvae tunnel through the growing terminal shoot, causing exudation of gum, branching and stunting, but since the edible roots are little affected chemical control is not normally necessary.
