Abstract Harmonia axyridis Pallas is a highly polymorphic coccinellid with a wide geographic distribution. Genetic polymorphism seems to be the strategy adopted for facing different habitats at different times. Many modifications, such as body shape, body size, and elytral patterns, may be adaptive through imparting increased tolerance to adverse conditions. Previous studies evaluating differences in the light-colored aulica and dark colored nigra phenotypes found differences in biological… Expand
Effects of Color Morph on Aggregation Formation for Hibernation in an Extremely Color Polymorphic Ladybug, Harmonia Axyridis (Pallas) (Coleoptera: Coccinellidae)
TLDR
It is shown that several morphs enlarge their aggregation size during grouping before hibernation, and it is suggested that it is beneficial for survival to aggregate with these morphs. Expand
Interference competition between ladybird beetle adults (Coleoptera: Coccinellidae): effects on growth and reproductive capacity
TLDR
The results suggest that interference competition with heterospecifics may adversely affect the reproductive capacity of C. undecimpunctata and suggest that the introduction of H. axyridis could endanger the population abundance and/or result in the competitive displacement of the Azorean ecosystem. Expand
Influence of prey quality on the fitness of two phenotypes of Harmonia axyridis adults
TLDR
Differences in the suitability of A. fabae and M. persicae for the two phenotypes of the predator suggests that either differences occur in the nutritive requirements of the predators, or in the nutritious value of the two prey species. Expand
Comparison of the demographic parameters and survival of two phenotypes of Harmonia axyridis (Coleoptera: Coccinellidae)
TLDR
A comparative study of the demographic parameters of two phenotypes of Harmonia axyridis Pallas, reared on the black bean aphid, Aphis fabae Scopoli at 25 ± 1°C, 65 ± 2% RH and a photoperiod of 16L : 8D finds that the risk of death of the succinea morph was significantly greater, however, there was no significant difference between the estimated survival times.

Effect of two temperatures on biological traits and susceptibility to a pyrethroid insecticide in an exotic and native coccinellid species
The Asian ladybird Harmonia axyridis (Pallas) (Coleoptera Coccinellidae), an active predator of aphids and other insect pests, has long been used as a biocontrol agent and deliberately orExpand
Phenotypic plasticity of pigmentation and morphometric traits in Pnigalio soemius (Hymenoptera: Eulophidae)
TLDR
The results confirmed the influence of temperature on numerous characters and that these characters had a larger range of variation than realized previously in the construction of taxonomic keys to species. Expand
Dietary self‐selection behaviour by the adults of the aphidophagous ladybeetle Harmonia axyridis (Coleoptera: Coccinellidae)
TLDR
The results suggest that H. axyridis present self-selection behaviour because they agree with the basic criteria of Waldbauer and Friedman's self- selection, i.e. the animal's choice of food or nutrients is non-random, and the coccinellid benefits from self-selecting. Expand
Effects of Environmental factors on Elytra Colored Patterns of Multicolored Asian Lady Beetles, Harmonia axyridis (Coleoptera: Coccinellidae)
TLDR
It was investigated that expression rates of melanic patterns relatively increased in overwintering populations collected in highly mean temperature and longer cumulative daylength area. Expand
Biological Characteristics and Environmental Adaptation of Four Phenotypes of Propylea japonica (Thunberg) (Coleoptera: Coccinellidae)
TLDR
The results demonstrated that the most abundant phenotype, ancora, had some advantages in terms of body width and voracity, while the less dominant phenotypes (feliciae and tessellata) were, respectively, less voracious and of smaller size. Expand
Effect of temperatura on reproductive attributes of the Mexican beetle Zygogramma bicolorata (Coleoptera: Chrysomelidae)
TLDR
The effect of different constant temperaturas on several reproductive attributes of the Mexican beetle, Zygogramma bicolorata Pallister, was studied and these findings may be useful in mass rearing programmes for the natural enemy. Expand

Fitness of two phenotypes of Harmonia axyridis (Coleoptera: Coccinellidae)
TLDR
It is suggested that a genotype that confers a specific pattern of elytra could also confer other specific autecological attributes, such as longevity and reproductive capacity, that could affect its fitness. Expand
Ecological studies on the polymorphic ladybird Adalia bipunctata in The Netherlands. II. Population dynamics, differential timing of reproduction and thermal melanism
TLDR
This study supports the hypothesis that thermal melanism through an influence on activity results in an earlier reproduction of melanics, and it is suggested that changes in relative fitness relationships associated with clines within the study area involve interactions between climate, Thermal melanism and life cycle Parameters of both the ladybird and its aphid prey. Expand
Physiological and behavioral characteristics of Chilocorus spp. (Coleoptera: Coccinellidae) in the laboratory relative to effectiveness in the field as biocontrol agents
TLDR
Feeding rates of this species were lower during the scotophase than during the photophase and increased as a function of duration of starvation and weights of adult Chilocorus spp. Expand
Effects of Two Prey Species on the Development of Hippodamia sinuate (Coleoptera: Coccinellidae) Larvae at Constant Temperatures
TLDR
The results of the studies confirm the importance of corn leaf aphids as an early-season, cool-temperature prey for H. sinuate and the effects of prey species and constant temperature regimes on the development of Hippodamia sinuate Mulsant were studied. Expand
Seasonal variation in elytral colour polymorphism in Harmonia axyridis (the ladybird beetle): the role of non-random mating
TLDR
The results of an artificial colour-change experiment indicate that male elytral colour is an important factor in female mate selection but other factors such as behaviour and chemical cues must also be involved. Expand
Predation of Leptinotarsa decemlineata (Coleoptera: Chrysomelidae) by Coleomegilla maculata (Coleoptera: Coccinellidae): Comparative Effectiveness of Predator Developmental Stages and Effect of Temperature
TLDR
Results suggest that inundative releases of third-instar C. maculata against eggs and first instars of Colorado potato beetles could be of interest in the case where releases of adult coccinellids would fail because of their tendency to rapidly fly out of the field. Expand
Melanism in Adalia bipunctata L. (Col., Coccinellidae) and its Relationship to Atmospheric Pollution
  • X Jiang, Z Ou, P Ying
  • Biology
  • 1975
TLDR
It would appear that selective predation of the morphs that blend less well with their surroundings, as has been shown for Biston betularia, would not operate on Adalia bipunctata and an alternative explanation for the existence of this polymorphism must be sought. Expand
Differences in thermal balance, body temperature and activity between non-melanic and melanic two-spot ladybird beetles (Adalia bipunctata) under controlled conditions
TLDR
The consequences of the elytral colour difference between non-melanic (red) and melanic two-spot ladybirds for their thermal properties were studied by applying and testing a biophysical model and the colour difference appeared to be the principal factor influencing activity. Expand
FEEDING AND EGG PRODUCTION OF TWO SPECIES OF COCCINELLIDS IN THE LABORATORY
TLDR
The adverse effects of a very low feeding rate, whether due to restricted food supply or low temperature, influenced the beetles' response to subsequent treatments, and no significant influence of temperature on either the conversion rate or the maintenance requirement could be detected. Expand
NATURAL SELECTION FOR ENVIRONMENTALLY INDUCED PHENOTYPES IN TADPOLES
TLDR
P. triseriata tadpoles adjusted their tail shape (but not body shape) almost exactly in the direction of selection imposed by Anax, suggesting that phenotypic plasticity in some morphological traits, such as tail depth and tail muscle width, has evolved under intermittent selection by dragonflies.
