Notes on the Variegated Grasshopper, Zonocerus variegatus, L., in Nigeria

, : Notes on the Variegated Grasshopper, Zonocerus variegatus, L., in Nigeria. Bull. ent. Res, London, 30: pt. 4, 543-550

An account is given of observations on the life-cycle of Zonocerus variegatus, L., bred in outdoor cages at Ibadan, Nigeria, during the period 1932-37. This Acridid is widespread in Nigeria and in French West Africa, and it ranges across tropical Africa through the Belgian Congo and into Uganda and Kenya. It is poly-phagous and damages cotton, cassava, maize, cacao, Cola, cowpeas, bananas and Citrus in Nigeria.
