Despite the large number of cranefly species only two have been convincingly associated with crop damage. The larvae of Tipula paludosa are commonly found as pests in both grassland and spring cereals whereas those of T. oleracea are only established as pests of winter cereals following crops of oilseed rape in the rotation. The latter, however, is probably the species involved in opportunistic situations involving various minor crops. These epidemiological contrasts are attributable to… Expand
PROCEEDINGS of the MEETING COMPTES RENDUS de la REUNION
TLDR
The planthopper Hyalesthes obsoletus is the vector of Bois noir disease of grapevine and diseases of other plants associated with stolbur phytoplasma, a xerothermic species that prefers sparse vegetation on open soil. Expand
Distribution of adult stages of soil insect pests across an agricultural landscape
TLDR
The landscape scale distributions of adult male click beetles of the species Agriotes lineatus, A. sputator, and the cranefly Tipula paludosa were studied using traps along transects over 2 years and it is concluded that Agriote spp. Expand
Pest Status of Invasive Crane Flies in New York Turfgrass and the Repercussions for Regional Plant Protection
TLDR
The categories and magnitude of damage observed in New York, the new insecticide burden this engenders, and the likelihood of spread to new regions and agroecosystems indicate that continued range expansion will have serious repercussions for regional plant protection. Expand
The spatial distribution of phytophagous insect larvae in grassland soils
TLDR
The results suggest that variation between taxa is likely to be due to interactions between scale-specific environmental, biotic and stochastic factors and individual taxon biology, and emphasises the need to take scale into account when interpreting data from ecological studies. Expand
Best Management Practices for Invasive Crane Flies in Northeastern United States Sod Production
Two species of crane flies (Diptera: Tipuloidea) introduced from Europe, Tipula oleracea L. and T. paludosa Meigen, have become established across portions of northeastern United States and presentExpand
Molecular identification and distribution of leatherjackets (Diptera: Tipulidae) in U.K. agricultural grassland
TLDR
This dominance of one species in leatherjackets suggests that there may be underlying differences in species biology, such as choice of oviposition site and dispersal ability, which is in agreement with other studies and has implications for monitoring and management. Expand
Within‐generation dynamics of leatherjackets (Tipula paludosa Meig.)
TLDR
The results show that the factors influencing leatherjacket numbers change over the life cycle, but by the fourth instar, these are biotically driven, which indicates defined windows for crop damage and availability as prey. Expand
Identification of Larvae of Exotic Tipula paludosa (Diptera: Tipulidae) and T. oleracea in North America Using Mitochondrial cytB Sequences
TLDR
The study indicated that mitochondrial cytB sequences provided an accurate, rapid, and economic technique for separation of T. oleracea and T. paludosa from each other and from native species, and insights on their habitats. Expand
Invasive Tipula (Diptera: Tipulidae) in Turfgrass of the Northeast United States: Geographic Distribution and Local Incidence Three Years After Detection
TLDR
Two species of invasive crane flies are damaging pests of turfgrass in the Great Lakes region after their inadvertent introduction and establishment, and how widespread they were across the state and across sites of recent local establishment is addressed. Expand
Evaluation of entomopathogenic fungi and a nematode against the soil-dwelling stages of the crane fly Tipula paludosa.
TLDR
This study shows that M. robertsii V1005 has considerable potential for the control of T. paludosa, thereby reducing the use of chemical insecticides. Expand

Factors affecting the availability of invertebrate food for the chough, Pyrrhocorax pyrrhocorax L
TLDR
Multivariate analysis of baseline data on the phenology of potential invertebrate foods of the chough and seasonal variations in the fauna associated with the cow pats indicated that the seasonal availability of prey items was the most important factor influencing chough diet throughout the year.

Susceptibility of the leatherjackets Tipula oleracea and T. paludosa to soil flooding.
TLDR
Survival times in deoxygenated water indicated that lethal conditions may not be entirely due to deoxy oxygenation of the water, and a relation was found between temperature and the survival of larvae of Tipula oleracea and T. paludosa. Expand

The impact of low numbers of leatherjackets on grass yield
TLDR
Experiments were carried out on seven sites in Fermanagh to investigate the yield loss caused by leatherjackets in grassland and it was found that 125,000 leatherjacket in March caused a yield loss of 50 kg herbage dry matter (DM) ha−1 by mid-May. Expand

TLDR
Nearly full-grown larvae of Tip & paludosa Meigen obtained by application to the soil of an emulsion of orthodichlorobenzene become non-susceptible to this treatment about 6 weeks before pupation and emerge as adults. Expand
Action of mephosfolan on anthocorid predators of Phorodon humuli

It is suggested that mephosfolan becomes unevenly distributed within the leaves, being most concentrated in the leaf margins and least concentrated inThe veins and petioles, and susceptibilities appeared similar. Expand
The Use of Organochlorine Insecticides and Possible Alternatives Against Leatherjackets
TLDR
It seems possible that about 300,000 acres of grassland may support populations in excess of 500,000 leatherjacket larvae per acre in an average year, though the economic damage done cannot be assessed at present. Expand
