Abstract The papaya mealybug, Paracoccus marginatus Williams and Granara de Willink (Hemiptera: Pseudococcidae), is recorded from the Oriental Region for the first time, where it was found in…
New Records of Invasive Insects (Hemiptera: Sternorrhyncha) in Southeast Asia and West Africa
New distribution records of introduced mealybugs and some other sap-sucking hemipteran insects (Coccidae and Diaspididae) in these regions are documents and progress in the biological control of some of these pests is discussed.
A new ascovirus from Spodoptera exigua and its relatedness to the isolate from Spodoptera frugiperda.
The presence of occlusion body and Southern hybridization and Western immunoblot analyses suggest that SeAV-5a is more closely related to S. frugiperda ascov virus 1a (SfAV-1a) than to Trichoplusia ni ascovirus 2 (TnAV-2).

Simian Rotaviruses Possess Divergent Gene Constellations That Originated from Interspecies Transmission and Reassortment
It is indicated that simian RVs are of diverse ancestry with genome constellations that originated largely by interspecies transmission and reassortment with nonhuman animal RVs.
Characterization of three ascovirus isolates from cotton insects.
Diamondback Moth (Lepidoptera: Plutellidae) Population Density and Parasitism by Diadegma insulare on Collard in South Carolina 1
The diamondback moth, Plutella xylostella (L.) (Lepidoptera: Plutellidae), is the most important insect pest of collard, Brassica oleracea var. acephala de Condolle, in South Carolina. In 1997 and…
Characterization of a single-nucleocapsid nucleopolyhedrovirus of Thysanoplusia orichalcea L. (Lepidoptera: Noctuidae) from Indonesia.
Polyhedrin amino acid sequence analysis revealed that ThorNPV belongs to Group II of baculoviruses and is closely related to Trichoplusia ni single nucleocapsid NPV, sharing 97.6% sequence identity.
A Comparison of Three Sampling Methods for Arthropods in Soybeans
The 3 methods were equally effective in sampling adults of geocorids and nabids and Larvae of P. scabra were sampled more effectively by the sweep-net method, and D-Vac samples consistently gave very low population estimates of all lepidopterous species.
Effects of Temperature on Development and Reproduction of a Predatory Beetle, Nephus includens Kirsch (Coleoptera: Coccinellidae) 1
30°C and 25-35°C were determined to be the most suitable temperatures for mass rearing of Nephus includens Kirsch, however, mass reared at a temperature as high as 35°C could cause deterio- ration of sprouted potatoes on which the citrus mealybug is reared.
