Abstract

Host plant data is provided for 23 species of cryptocephaline leaf beetles in Kentucky. The degree of beetle - plant association is quantified from field observations to laboratory feeding, mating and oviposition. New beetle - plant associations are reported at the following levels: 16 at the plant species level, eight at the plant genus level, and six at the plant family level. The most cryptocephaline species - plant family associations were with Fabaceae, Salicaceae, Anacardiaceae, Clusiaceae, and Fagaceae.
