Title:
Aspects of larva/host relations of the soybean nodule fly, Rivellia quadrifasciata (Diptera: Platystomatidae)
Publication date:
1984
Summary:
Rivellia quadrifasciata (Macquart), the soybean nodule fly (SNF), was reared in the laboratory on detached soybean nodulesand in the greenhouse on intact, nodulated root systems of hydroponically grown soybean plants. In greenhouse experiments,significantly more SNF individuals were reared from egg to adult on potted plants of a nodulating soybean near isoline than on itsnonnodulating counterpart. Southern pea (Vigna unguiculata) was identified as a new host for larvae by using adult emergence cages.In naturally infested field plots, significantly more adults emerged from southern peas than from soybeans, and none emerged frompeanuts or snap beans. Well nodulated soybeans were superior hosts, as compared to poorly nodulated soybeans. [AS]
