 en Curculionidae (Coleoptera) Associated with Wild and Cultivated Amaranthus check for this species in other resources Spp. (Amaranthaceae) in South Africa
Louw, S.; Van Eeden, C.F. & Weekds, W.J.

Abstract

Seven Curculionidae species were sampled in direct association with wild and cultivated vegetable Amaranthus check for this species in other resources spp. at five localities in central South Africa. These weevils fall within the tribes Lixini ( Hypolixus haerens check for this species in other resources ; Gasteroclisus cf cuneiformis; Neocleonus sannio check for this species in other resources ), Baridini (Baris cf dodonis; Baris cf amaranthi; Baris check for this species in other resources sp.), and Ceutorhynchini ( Hypurus check for this species in other resources sp.), all of which have different infestation patterns on their hosts. Simultaneous infestation by this weevil complex on Amaranthus check for this species in other resources thus implies large-scale damage to the particular plants. Two additional weevil species were also recorded in the vicinity of amaranth fields, but were not observed feeding on the plants. An established weevil parasitoid, viz. Entedon check for this species in other resources sp. (Eulophidae), was also recorded from amaranth plants.
