In leaf disc tests conducted with trifoliolates of 10 Trifolium species, lappa, crimson, ball, and striate clovers were all significantly less fed on by Hypera meles (F.) than red or white clover. Leaf feeding on the least preferred clover, striate, did not differ significantly from feeding on arrowleaf, ball, crimson, lappa, strawberry, or subterranean clover.
