Lepidoptera attacking Acacia dealbata Link., Acacia decurrens Willd., Acacia longifolia (Andr.) Willd., Acacia mearnsii de Wild. and Acacia melanoxylon R. Br. in eastern Australia



Lepidoptera attacking Acacia dealbata Link., Acacia decurrens Willd., Acacia longifolia (Andr.) Willd., Acacia mearnsii de Wild. and Acacia melanoxylon R. Br. in eastern Australia



Phytophylactica, 142: 43-46



In a 1 yr survey for potential agents for selected Australian wattles in South Africa, larvae of 11 spp. of Lepidoptera were found feeding on and completed their development on A. dealbata, 8 on A. decurrens, 24 on A. longifolia, 22 on A. mearnsii and 19 on A. melanoxylon. Three species fed on 4 of the 5 wattle species and 5 fed on 3 of the wattles. Species that damaged the leaves or phyllodes were the most abundant on all 5 wattles. Some of the Lepidoptera are known to be polyphagous and cannot be considered for the biocontrol of these wattles. On the other hand, the xyloryctid, Cryptophasa rubescens may be specific enough to be used for the biocontrol of A. longifolia in South Africa.
