Studies on a leaf feeding caterpillar of sweet potato, Brachmia convolvuli Wlsm. (Gelechiidae: Lepidoptera)



Studies on a leaf feeding caterpillar of sweet potato, Brachmia convolvuli Wlsm. (Gelechiidae: Lepidoptera)



Agricultural Research Journal of Kerala. 6: 1, 30-32



Brachmia convolvuli (Wlsm.) has recently become a common pest of sweet potato in the Indian State of Kerala. All stages are briefly described, and notes are given on its life-history and the nature of the damage caused. The egg, larval and pupal stages last 3, 13-14 and 7 days, respectively.
