Abstract
The caterpillar of Leucaloa eugraphica (Walker, 1865) (Erebidae: Arctiinae), is for the first time recorded feeding on two Mexican century plants, Agave mitis Mart, and A. hiemiflora Gentry (Asparagaceae subfam. Agavoideae / Agavaceae), in South Africa. The polyphagous L. eugraphica is indigenous to South Africa. Although the insect has not been found feeding on agronomic species of agave, crop managers should monitor for its presence in commercial plantations.
