Lecanicillium muscarium (Petch) Zare et Gams is a widely occurring entomopathogenic fungus. The effect of L. muscarium against Ricania simulans (Walker) (Rhynchota Ricaniidae) was studied under laboratory and field conditions. In laboratory studies, six isolates of L. muscarium were assessed against nymphs of R. simulans, at a single dose (1 x 10 7 conidia/ml) on tea leaflets. Mortality percentage caused by L. muscarium isolates after a seven-day period varied from 50.95 to 74.76% and median… 

Figures and Tables from this paper

Natural infection potential and efficacy of the entomopathogenic fungus Beauveria bassiana against Orosanga japonica (Melichar)
TLDR
The two isolates can potentially be used for O. japonica integrated management, as a fungal biocontrol agent, but their toxicological effects on beneficial insects, such as honeybees, will need to be determined.
Effect of fungal isolates and imidacloprid on cabbage aphid Brevicoryne brassicae and its parasitoid Diaeretiella rapae
TLDR
It is shown that entomopathogenic fungi can be effectively used alone and mixed with sublethal concentration (LC25 = 9.23 ppm) of imidacloprid in integrated pest management of B. brassicae and D. rapae and fungal isolates were safer than imidcloprid to the parasitoid.
Evaluation of some entomopathogenic fungi against the fall webworm (Hyphantria cunea Durry, Lepidoptera: Arctidae)
TLDR
The effects of some entomopathogenic fungi isolates obtained from Palomena prasina, another pest in hazelnut production areas, on H. cunea were found quite effective and it could be a promising agent for controlling this pest in the field in the future.
Insecticidal Effects of Essential Oils against Nymphal and Adult Stage of Ricania simulans (Hemiptera: Ricanidae)
TLDR
It was shown that mortality of the nymphs of R. simulans increased significantly after the treatment with essential oils, and positive control (Neemazal) have highest mortality rates for nymphS and adults and adults respectively.
Separate and Combined Effects of Mentha piperata and Mentha pulegium Essential Oils and a Pathogenic Fungus Lecanicillium muscarium Against Aphis gossypii (Hemiptera: Aphididae)
TLDR
Based on the results, M. piperata and M. pulegium essential oils and the pathogenic fungus L. muscarium have some potential for management of A. gossypii.
Doğu Karadeniz sahil şeridinin önemli zararlisi Ricania simulans (Walker,1851) (Hemiptera: Ricaniidae)'in mücadelesi üzerine araştirmalar Investigations on struggling with Ricania simulans (Walker) 1851 (Hemiptera: Ricaniidae) an important pest of the Eastern Black Sea Coastlines
TLDR
It was found that there were significant differences between light traps and sticky traps and it is suggested that light traps can be used as important tools in the fight against R. simulans.
Doğu Karadeniz sahil şeridinin önemli zararlısı Ricania simulans (Walker,1851) (Hemiptera: Ricaniidae)’ın mücadelesi üzerine araştırmalar
TLDR
It was found that there were significant differences between light traps and sticky traps and it is suggested that light traps can be used as important tools in the fight against R. simulans.
Distribution and activity period of the invasive Orosanga japonica (Melichar, 1898) (Hemiptera: Ricaniidae) in Turkey
The invasive species Orosanga japonica was found at 38 sites in Black Sea coastal zone of Turkey. It was recorded for the first time from the Central Black Sea Region, and for the second time from
INVASIVE PLANT PESTS (INSECTA AND ACARINA) OF TURKEY
TLDR
Turkey with its geographical location and favorable climate has very rich fauna terms of biodiversity, and has been invaded by a number of harmful exotic plant pests, and is a potential of containing the appropriate properties to the establishment and spread of invasive species in terms of biological diversity.

Pathogenicity of Beauveria bassiana and Metarhizium anisopliae to the tobacco spider mite Tetranychus evansi
TLDR
This study demonstrates the prospects of pathogenic fungi for the management of T. evansi by demonstrating the population density of mites reduced and conidia formulated in oil outperformed the ones formulated in water.
Relative susceptibility of Spodoptera litura pupae to selected entomopathogenic fungi
TLDR
The pupae of Spodoptera litura, a polyphagous pest affecting common crops in Indian subcontinent, were treated with different concentrations of conidia of four isolates of entomopathogenic fungi belonging to three species and suggested that M. anisopliae was the most virulent fungal strain followed by L. muscarium (ARSEF 7037), which could be developed into biocontrol agents against rice cutworm in IPM programs.
The fungus, Lecanicillium muscarium, is an entomopathogen of passionvine hopper (Scolypopa australis)

TLDR
Under both controlled laboratory and glasshouse conditions high mortality of second instar B. tabaci was recorded after application of L. muscarium and the potential of incorporating L.muscarium into integrated pest management strategies for the control of B.tabaci is discussed.
Traits associated with virulence to the aphid Macrosiphoniella sanborni in eighteen isolates of Verticillium lecanii
TLDR
A number of traits were frequently associated with the expression of virulence including fast germination, high sporulation rate, an absence of extracellular amylase activity and high extracllular chitinase activities.
Pathogenicity of hyphomycetous fungi against Cyclocephala signaticollis
TLDR
Among 14 fungal isolates screened the most virulent was a B. bassiana isolate that caused 70% mortality of third instar larvae in 40 days after inoculation at 1 × 108 conida/ml.
