The coccinellid H. axyridis shows considerable intraspecific variability of elytral patterns. In this paper, we suggest that a genotype that confers a specific pattern of elytra could also confer other specific autecological attributes. The aim of this paper is to compare fitness parameters of two phenotypes (aulica and nigra). Aulica is a common morph characterized by two light red areas that nearly cover the whole elytra, leaving a narrow black border, whereas nigra is completely black; the… 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
Effect of Temperature and Intraspecific Allometry on Predation by Two Phenotypes of Harmonia axyridis Pallas (Coleoptera: Coccinellidae)
TLDR
Temperature is a limiting factor to larval and adult relative consumption rate and predation activity of fourth instars and adults of aulica and nigra phenotypes were compared, and body size and shape could explain the differences observed. 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. Expand
Pollen as an alternative food for Harmonia axyridis
TLDR
The exploitation of pollen and other plant foods at times when insect prey is scarce, may offer a further competitive advantage to the non-indigenous coccinellid H. axyridis over native European predatory lady beetles that share the same niche and are less capable of using pollen as an alternative food. Expand
GOOD AND BAD TRAITS OF HARMONIA AXYRIDIS -FROM BIOLOGICAL CONTROL TO INVASION
TLDR
The relative merits of traits that are commonly associated with biological control agents (voracity, prey searching efficiency, tolerance to pesticides) along with those less often considered, but that are of equal importance, including overwintering potential, phenotypic adaptability and intraguild interactions with native aphidophagous species are discussed. Expand
Life history of the harlequin ladybird, Harmonia axyridis: a global meta-analysis
TLDR
Results of this meta-analysis support the hypothesis that the life history of the beetle has changed during its invasion into North America and Europe, and highlight differences in development rate that may partially explain the invasive success of H. axyridis. Expand
Color polymorphism, development, and reproductive diapause of the multicolored Asian ladybird Harmonia axyridis (Pallas) (Coleoptera, Coccinellidae) females
TLDR
Results suggest that the genes determining the color polymorphism in H. axyridis may have a pleiotropic effect on other traits including important eco-physiological parameters but this effect is relatively weak and manifests itself only against a particular genetic background and / or under particular environmental conditions. 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
Photoperiodic control of development and reproduction in Harmonia axyridis (Coleoptera: Coccinellidae)
TLDR
The rate of reproductive maturation of adult females of the multicolored Asian lady beetle was twice as high under long day conditions, with the threshold between 14L : 10D and 12L : 12D, although even under short day conditions ca 10% of the females show a tendency to mature more quickly. Expand
Intraguild predation between the aphidophagous ladybird beetles Harmonia axyridis and Coccinella undecimpunctata (Coleoptera: Coccinellidae): the role of body weight
The magnitude, direction and symmetry of intraguild predation (IGP) between the developmental stages of the aphido- phagous Harmonia axyridis Pallas and Coccinella undecimpunctata L. wereExpand

Potential of the Asian Predator, Harmonia axyridis Pallas (Coleoptera: Coccinellidae), to Control Matsucoccus resinosae Bean and Godwin (Homoptera: Margarodidae) in the United States
Studies were conducted in Connecticut from 1983 to 1986 to determine the ease with which the Asian coccinellid, Harmonia axyridis Pallas, can be reared in the laboratory, its ability to controlExpand
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
CONTROL AND SIGNIFICANCE OF THE SEASONAL DEVELOPMENT OF COLOUR FORMS IN THE SYCAMORE APHID, DREPANOSIPHUM PLATANOIDES (SCHR.)
TLDR
What factors in the sycamore aphid's environment regulate the appearance of the reddish and melanic forms are determined and the adaptive significance of these forms is discussed. 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
Temperature-Dependent Development in a Polymorphic Lady Beetle, Calvia quatuordecimguttata (Coleoptera: Coccinellidae)
TLDR
No differences were observed among the color morphs in the real or physiological time for egg-to-adult development, or for pupal weight, however, temperature did influence survival and growth rates of the overall population. Expand
Selection against the melanic morphs of Adalia bipunctata (two-spot ladybird): A review and some new data
TLDR
Evidence is presented to show that predation by birds on ladybirds occurs more frequently than previously supposed and it is proposed that the melanic frequency of a population is the result of the interaction of a number of factors whose importance varies from locality to locality. Expand
Why big species of ladybird beetles are not melanic
TLDR
Temperature excess was shown to be a function of the elytral surface area that is coloured black and it is suggested that large species of coccinellid are not melanic because if they were their body temperatures would frequently reach deleterious levels on sunny days. Expand
Genetics of Ladybeetles
TLDR
This chapter illustrates the genetics of ladybeetles with a focus on intraspecific variation in elytral patterns and geographic variation on elyTral patterns. Expand
Is polymorphism in two-spot ladybird an example of non-industrial melanism?
TLDR
It would seem that selective predation by birds upon the morphs which blend less well with their surroundings would not operate upon A. bipunctata, which are distasteful, have a distinctive scent, are warningly coloured and therefore are avoided by vertebrate predators. Expand
Intraguild predation among aphid predators : Characterization and influence of extraguild prey density
TLDR
This study shows that IGP is influenced by factors inherent to the predators and external factors such as extraguild prey density, which is discussed further in the context of aphid biological control. Expand
