A gregarine parasite of the flea beetles, Phyllotreta undulata and P. atra is reported and described as Gregarina phyllotretae Hoshide 1953. Gregarine infection was observed in all localities investigated during the study. Infection in the P. undulata population was always higher than that in the P. atra population. Maximum infections of both insects were recorded in August. Measurements of trophozoites, sporadins and syzygy forms of G. phyllotretae, new hosts, distribution, occurrence and…

Parasites of Phyllotreta atra (Fabricius, 1775) (Coleoptera: Chrysomelidae) in Trabzon.
The most abundant infection found in this study was gregarine infection followed by nematode infection with total infection rates 37.8% and 7.6%, respectively.
Distribution of Nosema phyllotretae (Microspora, Nosematidae) Weiser, 1961 in populations of Phyllotreta atra (Coleoptera, Chrysomelidae) in Turkey.
Results showed that N. phyllotretae infection occurs in P. atra populations in restricted localities within Turkey and it reached 42.5% in some samples.
Occurrence of the Pathogens and Parasites of Phyllotreta undulata (Coleoptera: Chrysomelidae) in Turkey
Gregarine and Howardula were the most common pathogen and parasite in P. undulata populations, and there is the first record of a Hexamermis (Nematoda: Mermithidae) parasite from P. Undulata in Turkey.
On the occurrence of a Gregarine Parasite from Psylloides cupreus Koch 1803 (Coleoptera: Chrysomelidae) of Turkey
During the study, several life stages, such as trophozoite, gamont and associative form of the gregarine parasite were observed in the intestine lumen of P. cupreus adults.
Gregarina typographi Fuchs, a Gregarine Pathogen of the Six-Toothed Pine Bark Beetle, Ips sexdentatus (Boerner) (Coleoptera: Curculionidae, Scolytinae) in Turkey
A gregarine pathogen of Ips sexdentatus is reported in Turkey for the first time and described as Gregarina typographi. A mixed nematode parasitization and gregarine infection is reported. Gregarines
Characteristic Features of Nosema phyllotretae Weiser 1961, a Microsporidian Parasite of Phyllotreta atra (Coleoptera: Chrysomelidae) in Turkey
The ultrastructural features of Nosema phyllotretae differ from those of other chrysomelid parasitic microsporidia.
Distribution and occurrence of microsporidian pathogens of the willow flea beetle, Crepidodera aurata (Coleoptera: Chrysomelidae) in North Turkey
Two species of microsporidia show considerable difference from each other in the spore morphology and dimension, infection rate and host locality in Crepidodera aurata populations as natural potentially suppressing factors.
A Nucleopolyhedrovirus from the Mediterranean flour moth, Ephestia kuehniella (Lepidoptera: Pyralidae)
This virus was isolated and characterized for the first time from E. kuehniella and found to contain a high number of nucleocapsids, and the viral particles were 190–270 × 30–40 nm.
Impact of entomopathogenic nematodes on adults of Phyllotreta spp. (Coleoptera: Chrysomelidae) under laboratory conditions
Steinernema feltiae was the most effective nematode and, as an alternative to chemical insecticides, appears to have the highest potential for controlling overwintered flea beetles (May) under field conditions.
Morphological and molecular-biological characteristics of two gregarine species (Eugregarinida: Gregarinidae) associated to Phaedon brassicae and Phyllotreta striolata (Coleoptera: Chrysomelidae)
It is suggested that the gregarines and their coleopteran hosts have species-specific interaction via co-evolution.

In the early spring of 1931 one or two hibernating adults of Phyllotrela undulata Kutsch., recovered from a piece of tree bark, were dissected by chance and found to be parasitized by a nematode.

It is known that these nematodes carry a symbiotic bacterium which provides essential food for the nematode whether they are infecting a host or in culture, and this bacterium is suitable for the bacterium to multiple.
