The life cycle of Arimania komaroffi (Ragonot, 1893) (Lepidoptera: Pyralidae), a new pest of Pistacia vera in Iran



The life cycle of Arimania komaroffi (Ragonot, 1893) (Lepidoptera: Pyralidae), a new pest of Pistacia vera in Iran



Entomologist' s Gazette 36(2): 113-114



Arimania komaroffi is now known from the provinces of Kerman, Fars, Isfahan, Rafsanjan and Yazd in Iran, and appears to be extending its range. It is bivoltine, and the adults of the 1st generation occur in April and May. Females lay their eggs in batches on the newly formed fruits of pistachio. The larvae first appear in May, boring into the fruits and causing them to shrivel and drop. Pupation takes place in the soil, and 2nd-generation adults occur in August and September.
