Further Notes on some of the Caterpillars attacking Coconut Leaves


, : Further Notes on some of the Caterpillars attacking Coconut Leaves. Year-Book Dept. Agric., Ceylon Peradeniya, 23-26

The legislation that has been passed against Nephantis serinopa (coconut caterpillar) in Ceylon is reviewed. As it is important to distinguish this pest, for which control measures have been made compulsory, from others infesting coconuts, a brief account is given of some caterpillars that might be mistaken for it. Among the commonest is Herculia nigrivitta, which is frequently found in old, dead, rolled-up coconut leaves killed by N. serinopa, or in the galleries vacated by it.
