Record of new alternate host plant of paddy leaf roller, Cnaphalocrocis medinalis Gn.

Abstract

Larvae of Cnaphalocrocis medinalis (Gn.) were observed feeding inside rolled leaves of Pennisetum pedicellatum growing along the borders of rice-fields in Madhya Pradesh during 1969-70. This is the first record of the rice pest infesting this grass in India.
