PARASITOIDS AND PARASITES OF SPODOPTERA FRUGIPERDA (LEPIDOPTERA: NOCTUIDAE) IN THE AMERICAS AND CARIBBEAN BASIN: AN INVENTORY
TLDR
An acugutturid, Noctuidonema guyanense (Remillet & Silvain), is the most important ectoparasitic nematode attacking adults of FAW and other noctuid moths in North America, Caribbean Basin, Central America, and Northern South America. Expand
Population Variation of the Fall Armyworm, Spodoptera frugiperda, in the Western Hemisphere
TLDR
The AFLP results showed that the majority of the genetic variability is within populations and not between populations, indicating minor gene flow and suggesting that S. frugiperda in the Western Hemisphere are an interbreeding population. Expand
A SURVEY OF FALL ARMYWORM (LEPIDOPTERA: NOCTUIDAE) PARASITOIDS IN THE MEXICAN STATES OF MICHOACÁN, COLIMA, JALISCO, AND TAMAULIPAS
TLDR
The greater diversity of parasitoids and higher rates of parasitism in Michoacan may be related to the more diverse habitat with more forests, orchards, and pastures near the cornfields in that state. Expand
NATURAL DISTRIBUTION OF HYMENOPTERAN PARASITOIDS OF SPODOPTERA FRUGIPERDA (LEPIDOPTERA: NOCTUIDAE) LARVAE IN MEXICO
TLDR
The hypothesis that natural distribution and rates of parasitism of FAW larvae may be related to more diverse habitats with more forests, orchards, and pastures near to cornfields is supported. Expand
POPULATION DYNAMICS OF THE FALL ARMYWORM, SPODOPTERA FRUGIPERDA (LEPIDOPTERA: NOCTUIDAE) AND ITS PARASITOIDS IN NORTHWESTERN ARGENTINA
TLDR
Parasitoid abundance in both regions was similar, but diversity was different possibly relating to the native surrounding vegetation in Vipos, which is the first report of population dynamics of the fall armyworm and its parasitoids in northwestern Argentina. Expand
Occurrence of Entomopathogenic Fungi and Parasitic Nematodes on Spodoptera frugiperda (Lepidoptera: Noctuidae) Larvae Collected in Central Chiapas, México
TLDR
Fall armyworm larvae collected from whorl-stage corn, between the V2 and V4 stages, in 22 localities of Central, Chiapas, México, called “La Frailesca” to determine the occurrence of native entomopathogens and parasitic nematodes, and to determined the most parasitized instars. Expand
Virulence of Metarhizium anisopliae (Deuteromycotina: Hyphomycetes) on Anastrepha ludens (Diptera: Tephritidae): Laboratory and Field Trials
TLDR
The fungus Metarhizium anisopliae may offer a preferable alternative to chemicals as a biological control agent against A. ludens and reduce adult emergence, 22% fewer adults emerging in a sandy loam soil, and 43% fewer in Loew soil, compared with the controls. Expand
Diabrotica virgifera virgifera (Coleoptera: Chrysomelidae) larval feeding behavior on transgenic maize (MON 863) and its isoline.
TLDR
Insight is provided into questions surrounding the potential evolution of behavioral and biochemical resistance to Cry3Bb1 and D. virgifera larval feeding behavior on rootworm-susceptible maize and maize containing a biotechnology-derived trait (MON 863) with resistance to D. v. virGifera. Expand
Diabrotica virgifera virgifera (Coleoptera: Chrysomelidae) Larval Feeding Behavior on Transgenic Maize (MON 863) and Its Isoline
TLDR
This study contributes to the understanding of D. v. virgifera larval behavior and provides insight into questions surrounding the potential evolution of behavioral and biochemical resistance to Cry3Bb1. Expand
Biological Differences Between Five Populations of Fall Armyworm (Lepidoptera: Noctuidae) Collected from Corn in Mexico
TLDR
Results suggest that two corn FAW strains may have developed reproductive isolation due to geographic isolation, as the two strains produce no progeny when paired. Expand
