Insects associated with weeds in the northeastern usa 3. chickweed stellaria media and stitchwort stellaria graminea caryophyllaceae



Journal of the New York Entomological Society 87(3): 223-235



Phytophagous and pollinating insects (156 spp.) and 3 phytophagous mites are associated with the introduced Eurasian chickweeds, S. media L. (Cyrillo) and S. graminea L. in the northeastern USA. Among these are 16 crop pests, including 3 known vectors of crop viruses that also infect S. media. Pollinators are primarily Apoidea, Syrphidae and Formicidae. The collection of Tmetothrips subapterus (Haliday) on S. graminea represents the 1st Western Hemisphere record. S. media ranks among the 10 most important weeds in the United States. A biological control program is possible, although it may be difficult due to the habit and habitat of this winter annual.
