Establishment of Pareuchaetes pseudoinsulata (Lepidoptera: Arctiidae), an exotic biocontrol agent of the weed, Chromolaena odorata (Asteraceae) in the forests of Kerala, India



Establishment of Pareuchaetes pseudoinsulata (Lepidoptera: Arctiidae), an exotic biocontrol agent of the weed, Chromolaena odorata (Asteraceae) in the forests of Kerala, India



Entomon 31(1): 49-51



Larvae of the exotic insect, Pareuchaetes pseudoinsulata introduced earlier for biocontrol of the weed, Chromolaena odorata were found in good numbers on the weed in Walayar (Palghat Dist.), Nilambur (Malappuram Dist.) and Kottappara (Ernakulam Dist.) in Kerala. Incidence, survival and selective feeding of this insect on the weed suggest further investigations into its utility as a biocontrol agent against C. odorata infesting forest plantations.
