Ecology of the leaf footed plant bug, Leptoglossus australis Fabricius (Heteroptera: Coreidae), in the sub-tropical region of Japan



Ecology of the leaf footed plant bug, Leptoglossus australis Fabricius (Heteroptera: Coreidae), in the sub-tropical region of Japan



Tropical Agriculture Research Series ( 23): 229-238



The seasonal occurrence of Leptoglossus australis was studied on Momordica charantia and Bryonopsis laciniosa in Japan during 1985. Overwintered adults utilized the fruits of B. laciniosa from May to June. The population increased during this period and adults immigrated to oviposit on M. charantia. From July to September, the population density of L. australis decreased due to an outbreak of Epilachna boisduvali which destroyed the food plants.
