Abstract

The head appendages of Adoryphorus couloni, a pasture pest in southeast Australia, are described and inferences are drawn about the beetle's biology. There is a lack of sexual dimorphism in the antennae. The long‐lived adults possess a full range of labial sensilla but the mandibles appear incapable of chewing. Hence trapping based on pheromones or feeding attractants is unlikely. Copyright © 1990, Wiley Blackwell. All rights reserved
