Survivorship of Australian Othreis fullonia on Erythrina variegata: hypotheses for development of host-plant biotypes in the Pacific



Survivorship of Australian Othreis fullonia on Erythrina variegata: hypotheses for development of host-plant biotypes in the Pacific



Entomologia Experimentalis et Applicata 80(1): 145-148



Experiments were carried out with Othreis fullonia from eastern Australia to determine if larvae could be induced to feed on Erythrina variegata. All 120 larvae from eggs deposited on organza died without feeding when placed on young foliage of E. variegata, but larvae from eggs deposited by the same moths fed readily on Tinospora smilacina and 75.8% completed development to adults.
