A STUDY ON MELIGETHES SPECIES IN KESZTHELY, 2002
2003, 4 (3) p. 237-244
In 2002 we examined when the Meligethes adults emerged from the wintering places and settled in the rape field. We wanted to know how many species within the genus Meligethes, when and in what proportion and rate appeared in oilseed rape as a feed plant. In our investigations we found the following species: Meligethes aeneus (Fabricius, 1775), M. coracinus (Sturm, 1845), M. viridescens (Fabricius, 1787), M. picipes (Sturm, 1845), M. nigrescens (Stephens, 1830), M. maurus (Sturm, 1845), M. atratus (Olivier, 1890), M. denticulatus (Heer, 1841), M. erythropus (Marsham, 1802).
