Abstract:
Southern strain plum curculio, Conotrachelus nenuphar (Herbst), was offered 22 immature tropical and subtropical fruits from 16 families to explore its possible host range outside of temperate regions. It fed to varying degrees on the different fruits, but oviposited and completed development only on rosaceous fruits (apple, plum, and peach), including loquat, Eriobotrya japonica Lindl.
