The species of this subfamily feed on leaves and are associated with the Boraginaceae, Bignoniaceae, Asteraceae, Convolvulaceae
and Solanaceae families, and also associated with other no host plants (Boldt and Staines, 1993; Buzzi, 1988; Virkki et al., 1992).
These plants belong to three genera of the Fabaceae family (Astragalus, Oxytropis, and Swainsona) (BURROWS & TYRL, 2012; COOK et al., 2009; COOK et al., 2013), one genus of the Convolvulaceae
family (Ipomoea) and one genus of the Malvaceae family (Sida) (OLIVEIRA JUNIOR et al., 2013).
Atractomorpha lata utilizes host plants belonging to various families including Asteraceae, Convolvulaceae
, and Fabaceae (Tanaka 2008).
The sweet potato, Ipomoea batatas (L.) (Solanales: Convolvulaceae
), is native to South and Central America and distributed worldwide, especially in underdeveloped countries (Franga & Ritschel 2002; Reddy 2015).
