Larvae of Araecerus fasciculatus were observed for the first time in October 1984 feeding and developing inside citrus fruit in a grove in Kuchinotsu, Japan. The orange cultivars Trovita, Joppa, Parson Brown, Valencia, Ogasawra, and Fukuhara were infested with the anthribid, and navel oranges were severely affected. All larvae were found under or around lesions of citrus canker in the peel, suggesting that infestation with the anthribid was closely related to the occurrence of the disease.
