Insects found on Araujia species (Apocynaceae, Asclepiadoideae) in Argentina

Diego Carpintero, Daniel Testoni


The results of a survey of the natural enemies of moth plant or “tasi”, species of Araujia (Apocynaceae, Asclepiadoideae), present in Argentina are shown in this paper. 57 species of insects were recorded of which 17 are cited as natural enemies of these species for the first time. Their specificity was determined and their potential
use as biological control agents for Araujia hortorum Fourn. was hypothesized. Pseudosphex noverca Schaus (Lepidoptera, Arctiidae), is recorded for the first time in the Buenos Aires province, Argentina.
