Clover stem borer, Languria mozardi (Coleoptera: Languriidae), on soybeans, Glycine max: A new host record
Florida Entomologist 93 (1), 125-127
Abstract: Languria mozardi larva, pupae and adults were recovered from soybean stems during stem dissections to detect Dectes texanus in Arkansas, Missouri, and Tennessee demonstrating that soybean is an acceptable host plant. This is the second native stem boring insect to adopt the introduced soybean as a larval host in the mid-southern United States.
