Abstract

In this bibliography, 107 publications are cited containing information on Prostephanus truncatus (Horn), a pest of stored cob maize, cassava and other commodities which often begins infestation in the field. The distribution of this beetle was until recently largely confined to the Americas, with population centres in Mexico and Central America, but has become established in Tanzania and is a potential threat to all maize-growing regions of Africa.
