A review of recent sampling and ecological studies on bagworms (Lepidoptera: Psychidae) in commercial plantations of oil palm

A review of recent sampling and ecological studies on bagworms (Lepidoptera: Psychidae) in commercial plantations of oil palm

Planter 76(886): 9-14

This paper reviews the life history of bagworms (Lepidoptera: Psychidae), with a particular emphasis on sampling and ecological studies conducted with Oiketicus kirbyi (Guilding) and Metisa plana (Walker) in commercial plantations of oil palm in Costa Rica, Indonesia, and Malaysia. In comparison with M. plana, O.kirbyi is a relatively large bagworm with wider range of host plants, greater feeding requirement, and higher fecundity.
