Abstract:The damage potential of two hispid leaf beetles in soybean was investigated. Larvae of Odontota horni Smith and Ba/iosus nervosus Panzer mined an averge (± SD) of 4.79 ± 1.23 and 1.44 ± 0.37 cm2 of soybean leaf tissue, respectively. Total adult foliage consumption was 15.40 ± 3.77 cm2 for O. horni and 5.80 ± 1.78 cm2 for B. nervosus. The pattern of daily adult foliage consumption is described for both species. The potential for pod damage by adults of O. horni seems slight. Economic injury level calculations indicated that B. nervosus and larval O. horni populations would rarely require control. Adult O. horni populations may cause economic losses at the time of plant emergence. The damage potential of adult populations later in the season may be of importance when considered in combination with damage caused by other soybean pests.
