Abstract:Bruchus leutis Frölich has been reported as doing considerable damage to lentils, Lens esculenta Moench, in many parts of the world. Martelli (1963) reported 5.4% infestation of lentil seed in Italy and Pasquier et al. (1950) reported infestations as high as 45.2% in Algeria. In India, the insect was recorded for the 1st time in February 1968 in lentil plots at New Delhi. Subsequent regular Sweepings in lentil plots in 1968 and 1969 showed that although the adult bruchids were present in the field they were not causing losses of economic importance.
