Phytophagous insects associated with goldenrods (Solidago spp.) in Gainesville, Florida
Florida Entomologist 77 (2), 209-221
Abstract: The insect fauna of four species of goldenrods, Solidago canadensis var. scabra, S. fistulosa, S. gigantea and S. leavenworthii, was surveyed during four years in and around Gainesville, Florida. The 122 phytophagous species collected are listed and classified according to relative frequency of occurrence, guild, host range, plant part attacked, life stages collected, and associated goldenrod species. Only 14 (11%) of the phytophagous species are known to be restricted to goldenrods and Aster (Compositae). Eight insect species are considered as possible biological control agents of Solidago spp.
