Effects of precocene II on last instar larvae of Spodoptera mauritia (Lepidoptera: Noctuidae)



Effects of precocene II on last instar larvae of Spodoptera mauritia (Lepidoptera: Noctuidae)



Current Science 52(8): 376-377



In the laboratory in Kerala, India, treatment (either single or repeated daily) of 6th-instar larvae of Spodoptera mauritia (Boisd.) with precocene II (6,7-dimethoxy-2,2-dimethyl-2H-1-benzopyran) prolonged the larval and pupal periods and caused the formation of abnormal pupae, but treated larvae that were subsequently treated with the juvenile hormone analogue hydroprene (ZR-512) gave rise to normal pupae after the usual time.
