Ocinara varians Walker is a serious insect pest on Ficus trees in South China.In order to evaluate the parasitizing potential of trichogrammatid species to O.varians,functional response of Trichogramma dendrolimi,T.pretiosum,T.pintoi,T.ostriniae,T.confusum,T.closterae,T.evanescens and Trichogrammatoidea bactrae to O.varians eggs was tested in laboratory.The results showed that,beside T.bactrae,the functional response curve of seven Trichogramma species to O.varians could be well described by… Expand
Potential Use of Trichogramma pintoi as a Biocontrol Agent Against Heortia vitessoides (Lepidoptera: Pyralidae)
TLDR
Results suggest that T. pintoi is a promising candidate for inundative release against H. vitessoides in China, and these findings will guide efforts in achieving mass production of this parasitoid. Expand
Effect of temperature on the life cycle of Trilocha varians (Lepidoptera: Bombycidae) in Pakistan
TLDR
The present study results were effective for future management of T. varians in Pakistan and showed that the fecundity of female ranged from 164 to 275 and 130-190 under controlled and uncontrolled conditions respectively. Expand
First Report of Trilocha (= Ocinara ) Varians and its Natural Enemies on Ficus Spp. from Haryana, India
TLDR
Information on morphology of different life stages of T. varians is highlighted in this report and its biology, management, host range and natural enemies associated with it is necessary to avoid future outbreak. Expand
Entomopathogenic fungi disturbed the larval growth and feeding performance of Ocinara varians (Lepidoptera: Bombycidae) larvae
TLDR
Feeding experiments using three strains of entomopathogenic fungi with newly moulted 3rd–5th instar Ocinara varians Walker larvae suggest that all the studied fungal strains have a high potential for biocontrol and could be developed into biocOntrol agents against O. varians. Expand
PATHOGENIC EFFECT OF METARHIZIUM ANISOPLIAE ON THE LARVAL GROWTH AND DEVELOPMENT OF OCINARA VARIANS WALKER (LEPIDOPTERA: BOMBYCIDAE)
TLDR
The results suggest that M. anisopliae may be an alternative for synthetic pesticides in order to protect ornamental plants against O. varians. Expand
In vitro and in vivo culturing impacts on the virulence characteristics of serially passed entomopathogenic fungi.
TLDR
The results indicated that the influence of nutritional conditions on fungal growth and sporulation is strain dependent and serial subculturing of entomopathogenic fungi on PDA significantly affects the level of infection. Expand
The fauna of the family Bombycidae sensu lato (Insecta, Lepidoptera, Bombycoidea) from Mainland China, Taiwan and Hainan Islands.
TLDR
Two new genera and four new species are described, two subgenera are raised to generic status, seven new combinations are made, and one genus and six species are newly recorded from China. Expand
Evaluation of the Parasitism Capacity of Egg Parasitoid Telenomus dignus on Chilo sacchariphagus
TLDR
As the dominant natural enemy of sugarcane stem borers, T. dignus proved to be a remarkable egg parasitoid of C. sacchariphagus, providing a basis for using T. Dignus to control C. Saccharipagus in sugarCane areas. Expand
