Abstract

VALLEJO, Fernando; MORON, Miguel Ángel  and  ORDUZ, Sergio. BIOLOGY OF Phyllophaga obsoleta BLANCHARD (COLEOPTERA: MELOLONTHIDAE): A ROOTCHAFER SPECIES FROM THE WHITE GRUBS COMPLEX OF COLOMBIA. Bol. Cient. Mus. Hist. Nat. Univ. Caldas [online]. 2007, vol.11, n.1, pp.188-204. ISSN 0123-3068.

By means of life tables, the development stages that composed the life cycle of Phyllophaga obsoleta Blanchard were analyzed, which is part of the white grubs complex in Colombia. Consequently, its importance as an economic activity in Colombia recognized. Additionally, some aspects related to its phenology and distribution in the eastern part of the Antioquia department (Colombia) were analyzed, where it was found to be associated to agricultural and ornamental crops as well.

Keywords : Coleoptera; Melolonthidae; white grubs; Phyllophaga spp.; Colombia.
