Abstract:Serious damage to chrysanthemums in one garden in Tucson, Arizona, by a small stem borer proved to be due to a hitherto unrecorded insect pest. This was identified as Cylindrocopturus Jatrophae Fall, first discovered by Schwarz on Jatropha in the Santa Catalina Mountains. Jatropha is a native shrub of the family Euphorbiaceae.
