Abstract Callosobruchus maculatus is a bruchid beetle that develops in the seeds of 14 species of Leguminosae, but the cowpea Vigna unguiculata is its main host plant. The conditions of adaptation for a C. maculatus population originating from West Africa on a new host plant, Vicia faba, were analysed in this study. When the C. maculatus females oviposited on the seeds of V. faba, 2.4% of the larvae penetrated the cotyledons and completed their post-embryonic development. The other larvae died… Expand
