Artificial diets fortified with varying concentrations of Liriope muscari Bailey foliage and fed to corn earworm, Heliothis zea (Boddie), caused symptoms similar to those induced by consumption of the nonprotein amino acid L-azetidine-2-carboxylic acid. A concentration as low as 5% (wt/vol) foliage in the diet significantly affected larval growth and development; effects were more severe in larvae reared on higher concentrations. Incorportion of foliage into the larval diet adversely affected larval survival and weight gain, number of days to pupation, percentage of normal pupation, number of days to emergence, percentage of adult emergence, rate of adult deformity, fecundity, and fertility.
