Acrosternum hilare (Say) was fed a suspension of the yeast-spot disease organism, Nematospora coryli Peglion, in sugar water and on N. coryli-inoculated soybeans in the laboratory to obtain infested insects. The suspension method prove the more reliable, infesting 100% of the specimens, compared with 73% fed on inoculated soybeans.

Insects consistently retained N. coryli in their heads for 9o days, and less frequently in their thoraxes and abdomens. Insects lost N. coryli from their heads during moiling, and it was isolated from their feces but not from salivary secretions.
