A large presence of miller moths at the study area during the spring of 2002 coincided with the phenology of lepidopterans
in the diet of big brown bats.
Spectacled Tyrants seem to take advantage of high availability of certain prey such as lepidopterans
, odonats, and orthopterans, which would make it a generalist species in the consumption of insects and, on the other hand, shows an opportunistic feeding behavior, since nestlings were fed in relation to prey availability and not the state of the chicks' development.
Introduction of cry1Ab gene into cotton (Gossypium hirsutum) enhances resistance against Lepidopteran
pest (Helicoverpa armigera).
On Crane, eastern pipistrelles are lepidopterans
, coleopterans, dipterans, and homopterans; Asiatic oak weevils were 8.
In that study, important foods included beetles (Scarabaeidae, Chrysomelidae--spotted cucumber beetle, Carabidae, and unidentified Coleoptera), hemipterans (a green Pentatomidae--stinkbug, Acrosternon hilare), hymenopterans (Formicidae and Ichneumonidae), homopterans (Cicadellidae), and lepidopterans
, Dipterans, and Hemipterans consistently have been identified in the diets of eastern pipistrelles.
The lack of stabilization of species accumulation curves in short term for the species of group III may be caused by the low variability of plants and scarcity of alternative sources of food for lepidopterans
in the plantation understory in the first months of planting.
Their presence implies that desirable pollinators also will be present at the site because many lepidopteran
larvae develop into butterflies or moths (Bawa et al.
Fruits contain a few to over 100 seeds, and unidentified Lepidopteran
larvae often damage fruits and stems.
0%; sixth at Crane were lepidopterans
(sixth at Indiana/Illinois also with 4.
Other prey items, such as lepidopterans
, hymenopterans, pseudoscorpiones, and chilopods, were found in much lower percentages (Table 3).
There was no relationship between foliage-gleaning bird captures and foliage-dwelling lepidopterans
(F = 1.
