  author={D. Blumberg and E. Swirski},
Cybocephalus nigriceps nigriceps (J. Sahlberg),C. micansReitter,C. aegyptiacusEndrody-Younga, andC. binotatusGrouvelle were able to develop and reproduce while feeding on the California red scale,Aonidiella aurantii (Maskell), or on the Florida red scale,Chrysomphalus aonidum (L.). The ivy scale,Aspidiotus hederae (Vallot), was not suitable as a diet for the reproduction, developmen and survival of any of the 4Cybocephalus species. However, the suitability to the prey as a diet varied among the… Expand

Comparative biological studies on two species of predatory beetles of the genusCybocephalus [Col.: Cybocephalidae]
Progeny production of both cybocephalid species was higher and adult longevity was longer at 28° C than at 32° C and the distribution of the 2 predators in different climatic regions of Israel was explained. Expand

Five species of Cybocephalidae in America north of Mexico are revised and illustrations of morphological features, including detailed drawings of male genitalia, distribution data, and host lists are provided. Expand
Review: Date palm arthropod pests and their management in Israel
The key pests in date plantations in Israel are the lesser date moth and sap beetles in most of the date-growing areas, and spider mites which are restricted to the Arava Valley, and future management of the first two should rely on an improved monitoring system and integration of pheromone application for reduction of the population and damage.

Non-target effects of insect biocontrol agents and trends in host specificity since 1985.
Recommendations for future actions to improve this record are made: distinguish host use from population-level impact; develop country-level online summaries of relevant information; plan biological control projects with conservation partners; and conduct post-release comparisons of actual impact to predicted risk based on quarantine studies.

Survey and distribution ofCybocephalidae [Coleoptera] in Israel
Nine species ofCybocephalus were found in a survey conducted throughout Israel: C. micans and C. nigriceps are the most prevalent: the former in the Coastal Plain on citrus and the latter in the Arava region on date palms. Expand
