Abstract : Biological studies and initial host-range tests of four species of aquatic caterpillars that feed on Hydrilla verticillata were conducted in Australia. One of these species, Parapoynx Diminutalis, has accidentally been introduced into the United States and occurs in lakes and ponds or in backwaters along rivers. The other three species, Aulacodes Siennata Nymphula Eromenalis and Strepsinoma Repititalis, apparently are restricted to permanent streams and have never been found in the…

Five species of Nymphulinae larvae (Ambia ptolycusalis (Walker), Parapoynx diminutalis Snellen, Hygraula nitens Butler, Margarosticha repititalis (Warren) and Theila siennata (Warren)) that feed on hydrilla in North Queensland are illustrated, described and provided a key to.

Overview and Future Direction of Biological Control Technology

Hydrilla was usually preferred by larvae when paired with a test plant, but it was not preferred by ovipositing females in small-cage tests, and tests indicated that Cabombo caroliniana A. Gray, Ceratophyllum demersum L., Egeria densa Planchon, and Najas guadalupensis (Sprengel) Magnus might be at risk for larval attack in the field.
