Biology of the leucaena psyllid, Heteropsylla cubana Crawford (Homoptera: Psyllidae) in South India

Data are reported on the biology (including the life cycle) and predators of Heteropsylla cubana, a pest of subabul (Leucaena leucocephala) now found in India, based on observations made from May to July 1988, at the Regional Research Station of the University of Agricultural Sciences, Bangalore.
