Alightment of Edovum puttleri Grissell (Hymenoptera: Eulophidae) in response to colors mimicking three hosts of the Colorado potato beetle (Coleoptera: Chrysomelidae)


, : Alightment of Edovum puttleri Grissell (Hymenoptera: Eulophidae) in response to colors mimicking three hosts of the Colorado potato beetle (Coleoptera: Chrysomelidae). Journal of Entomological Science. October; 324: 386-397

The effect of leaf colour on alighting behaviour of Edovum puttleri was examined in a laboratory sticky-board test. Paint models mimicking the leaf top colours of eggplant potato and tomato and a model mimicking average underside leaf colour were tested in paired comparisons. The underside leaf colour mimic was the most preferred; no significant differences in landing rates occurred among any of the three leaf top colour mimics.
