Bulletin of Entomology New Delhi 35(1-2): 71-77
Biology of the lily moth, Polytela gloriosae (Fab.) (Lepidoptera: Noctuidae) on Gloriosa superba Linn
The biology of Polytela gloriosae, a pest of Gloriosa superba (a medicinal plant) was studied in the laboratory. The study showed that the eggs were laid in masses, sticking to the lower surface of leaves. The incubation, larval and pupal development varied from 3.0 to 4.0, 11.0 to 16.0 and 15.0 and 20.0 days, respectively, under laboratory conditions. There were five larval instars with a pre-pupal period. Pupation was observed in the soil in an earthen cocoon.
