Flea beetles in the genus Altica are herbivorous, urban agricultural pests that are morphologically difÞcult to distinguish. Host plant associations, therefore, have been used as an important species character in Þeld studies. Indigenous weeds in the Onagraceae, genus Oenothera, are known to serve as developmental hosts for the ßea beetle Altica litigata Fall. Although host plant speciÞcity in herbivorous beetles is labile and adult A. litigata have been reported to aggregately feed on plants… CONTINUE READING
