Abstract:Barnes and Simmons (1952) reported that the sawtoothed grain beetle, Oryzacphihis surinamensis (L.), reduced populations of the Indian meal moth, Plodia interpunctella (Hübner), by feeding on its eggs. My recent studies (unpublished) confirmed these findings and prompted questions about the possibility that such feeding on eggs and dead adults of the Indian meal moth might increase populations of the sawtoothed grain beetle.

- Annals of the Entomological Society of America is published in January, March, May, July, September, and November. Annals especially invites submission of manuscripts that integrate different areas of insect biology, and address issues that are likely to be of broad relevance to entomologists. Articles also report on basic aspects of the biology of arthropods, divided into categories by subject matter: systematics; ecology and population biology; arthropod biology; arthropods in relation to plant diseases; conservation biology and biodiversity; physiology, biochemistry, and toxicology; morphology, histology, and fine structure; genetics; and behavior.
