Abstract

To better understand the naturally occurring host range of Bean pod mottle virus (familyComoviridae, genusComovirus, BPMV) and its principal vectorCerotoma trifurcata (Förster) (Coleoptera: Chrysomelidae), 18 field-collected perennial plant species were tested for the presence of BPMV. By using no-choice assays, we determined the preference of these plants by bean leaf beetle, by measuring their level of herbivory relative to soybean,Glycine max (L.). New food hosts for adult bean leaf beetles includeLespedeza capitata (Michaux),Lotus corniculatus L.,Trifolium alexandrinum L.,Trifolium ambiguum Bieberstein, andTrifolium incarnatum L.Desmodium illinoense Gray is discovered as a new naturally occurring host for BPMV.
