Two Caterpillars of economic Importance not recorded before from S. India



J. Bombay nat. Hist. Soc. Bombay 40(2): 336-338



The leaves of Coleus parviflora cultivated as a vegetable in Malabar are damaged by the larvae of Pycnarmon cribrata, F., and Phostria piasusalis, Wlk., which have not previously been recorded as pests in India. The adults and larvae of these Pyralids are very briefly described. The eggs of Pycnarmon are laid on the young leaves, and the larva feeds and later pupates inside a longitudinally folded leaf. The pupal stage lasts 10-12 days.
