The first record of Beauveria bassiana (Deuteromycetes) on the hibernating pupae of Cameraria ohridella (Lepidoptera: Gracillariidae)
Published: August 18, 2009
Samples of the horse chestnut leaves with C. ohridella pupae were collected in autumn at Ceske Budejovice. The leaves were dissected and the pupae were individually placed into the 23°C and 95% R.H. Development of mycosis was frequently observed but only a few pupae were infected by B. bassiana. The strains of the fungus were isolated from individual pupae and deposited in Culture Collection of Entomopathogenic Fungi Olesna.
