MARTINS PIRES, EVALDO et al. Oxymerus aculeatus (Coleoptera: Cerambycidae) causing damage on corn plants (Zea mays) in Brazil. Rev. Colomb. Entomol. [online]. 2011, vol.37, n.1, pp. 82-83. ISSN 0120-0488.
The adults and larvae of Cerambycidae are responsible for damage to plant species. The insects of this family are commonly known as wood borers, being easily recognized by the presence of long antennae, usually longer than the body. Specimens of Oxymerus aculeatus (Coleoptera: Cerambycidae) were found in corn fields at the Federal University of Viçosa, Minas Gerais State, Brazil, during the flowering period and damaging the reproductive part of the plant.
