Field studies of predators on Aulacaspis tegalensis (Zhnt.) and laboratory breeding experiments, supplemented by taxonomic studies, showed that Chilocorus discoideus Crotch and C. bilineata Korsch. are junior synonyms of C. schioedtei Muls. and that two other forms, originally described as ‘aberrations’, may also belong to this species. Similarly, C. erythrocephalus Muls. and C. solitus Weise are junior synonyms of C. distigma (Klug). C. rufoplagiatus sp. n., allied to C. distigma , is… Expand
