Abstract

We report the discovery of the western bean cutworm, Striacosta albicosta (Smith), as an economically important pest of corn in an infested field at Huachichil, in the southern part of the state of Coahuila, Mexico. This is the second report of this emerging pest as the prevalent insect in infested corn ears at a field in Mexico.
