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.

The arctiid completed only 1 generation, and development took 35.45+or-4.25 days from egg to adult emergence.
