In comparison, some oligophagous
insects seem more susceptible to dietary ecdysteroids, such as Pectinophora gossypiella (Saunders) (Gelechiidae) (Kubo et al.
If this significant oligophagous

Acquisition of a native host-plant by an introduced oligophagous
Lepidosaphes tokionis (Diaspididae) is an oligophagous
species that has become relatively tropicopolitan; it was recorded from Java by Ali (1969).
Psyllids are generally monophagous or narrowly oligophagous
with respect to their angiosperm hosts (Hodkinson 1974).
With only a few exceptions, the host plants of the oligophagous
beetles are taxonomically related.
Rearing the oligophagous
Cactoblastis cactorum (Lepidoptera: Pyralidae) on meridic diets containing different nonhost proteins.
Perhaps as a result of degradation of the forest fragments we found a similar proportion of monophagous and oligophagous
fly species versus polyphagous species (50 versus 50%) in guava orchards and forests fragments.
Sequestration of allomones from plants by insects is not unusual, but normally associated with monophagous or oligophagous
2011) indicated that most of the florivorous Eumaeini of the Brazilian Cerrado are polyphagous or oligophagous
It is a multivoltine species with high reproductive potential and a short life cycle; and it is considered to be oligophagous
because it prefers mainly solanaceous species as host plants (Desneux et al.
The South American cactus moth, Cactoblastis cactorum (Berg) (Lepidoptera: Pyralidae), is an oligophagous
herbivore whose endophagous larvae feed gregariously on numerous Opuntia species (CaryophyHales: Cactaceae) (Mann 1969; Zimmermann et al.
