Response of Galleria mellonella (Lepidoptera: Pyralidae) and Tenebrio molitor (Coleoptera: Tenebrionidae) to Spiroplasma citri inoculation



Response of Galleria mellonella (Lepidoptera: Pyralidae) and Tenebrio molitor (Coleoptera: Tenebrionidae) to Spiroplasma citri inoculation



Journal of Invertebrate Pathology 501: 9-15



Injections of either in vitro or in vivo inoculum of the BR-6 isolate of Spiroplasma citri (from horseradish) propagated for 1-9 passages into 4th-instar larvae of Galleria mellonella caused 5.7-24.7% mortality. Weight gain of the larvae injected in their 4th, 5th and 6th instar was reduced in the first 4 days after inoculation but final pupal weight of the survivors was not significantly affected.
