This is the first work to bring together the enormous body of information on what these creatures eat. 
Generalist and specialist host–parasitoid associations respond differently to wild parsnip (Pastinaca sativa) defensive chemistry
1. Plant defensive chemistry is predicted to have a more negative effect on generalist herbivores and their parasitoids than on specialist herbivores and their parasitoids.
Additions to the known larval host plants of Indian Lepidoptera
The present paper lists hitherto unreported larval host plant records of Indian Lepidoptera that were evidently overlooked in subsequent major works on the subject.
A new larval host record for Sphingomorpha chlorea (Cramer) (Insecta: Lepidoptera: Noctuidae) from Karnataka, India.
Lantana camara (Verbenaceae) is reported as a new larval hostplant for Sphingomorpha chlorea (Cramer) (Lepidoptera: Noctuidae) from Savandurga, Karnataka, India.
Insect pests of Binuang ( Octomeles sumatrana ) in Sabah
More than 19 insect species were recorded causing damage to Binuang. All are defoliators except one stem-borer. Many are new records. Information pertaining to the description, life cycle and other
On the presence of Aglais cashmirensis Kollar (Nymphalidae) and Heliophorus sena Kollar (Lycaenidae) in Rupa, Arunachal Pradesh, India
Aglais cashmirensis Kollar and Heliophorus sena Kollar are reported from Rupa, Arunachal Pradesh, India, in the Eastern Himalaya.
New records of insects associated with Bornean endemic dipterocarp seedlings.
The most frequently encountered insect species was Clethrogyna turbata Butler (Lepidoptera: Lymantriidae), which occurred on four dipterocarp species, and caused severe defoliation to Shorea symingtonii, S. waltonii and S. kudatensis seedlings.
A tortricid moth of Cydia sp. (Lepidoptera: Tortricidae) boring into thorns of Gleditsia japonica Miq. (Fabaceae) in Japan
A tortricid moth larva in the genus Cydia bores into thorns of the endangered Japanese honey locust Gleditsia japonica, suggesting the larva may escape predation by using the thorns as protection.
Taxonomy and biology of two seed-parasitic gracillariid moths (Lepidoptera, Gracillariidae), with description of a new species
A new species and new record of gracillariid moths from China are reported and Morphology of the eggs, larvae, pupae and the life history of the two species are described and compared.
Early stages and larval host plants of some northeastern Indian butterflies
Early stages and larval host plants of 78 butterfly species, some of which are rare and endemic, are reported, providing specific information on spatial and temporal details associated with these records.
Further studies on two species of the moth genus Paralebeda Aurivillius (Lepidoptera: Bombycoidea: Lasiocampidae) from northwestern India
The known Indian species of the moth genus Paralebeda Aurivillius namely femorata (Menetries) and the type species plagifera (Walker) have been taxonomically treated and the genus diagnosis has been updated and a key has also been formulated.
