Recent advances on biology and ecology of the cowpea hairy caterpillar amsacta moloneyi lepidoptera arctiidae in senegal

Changes in ecological conditions in the Sahelian region of Africa, following a severe drought in 1972, affected the biology of the hairy caterpillar of cowpea, A. moloneyi. This species, known previously as univoltine, appeared to be bivoltine during 1975-1976. The importance of pupal diapause in this species was also noted. The distribution of A. moloneyi was not homogeneous from the north to the south of Senegal.
