The rhinoceros beetle (Oryctes rhinoceros L.) in Ceylon. Part I. Introduction, distribution and lite history



The rhinoceros beetle (Oryctes rhinoceros L.) in Ceylon. Part I. Introduction, distribution and lite history



Trop. Agriculturist. Peradeniya 114(1): 39-60



Oryctes rhinoceros (L.) has long been a pest of coconut in Ceylon. Its recorded distribution is briefly summarised, its habits and various stages (L 108) 11/60 31 are described, and studies on its life-history in the laboratory are recorded. When fed on coconut petioles, the females laid 14-27 eggs each in 4-10 days. Up to 90 per cent. of the eggs hatched, and the larvae, which were kept in a dung mixture, passed through three instars and pupated in cells at the sides of the beakers.
