cabbage leaf sawfly (Athalia rosae)

There are two black rhomboid spots on upper side of thorax. Pupae Tough, silken cocoon, yellow in colour Hill, Scutellum and middle lobes of notum, meso- and metathorax are yellow underneath. Pests Athalia rosae L.

The adult feeds on nectar. Turnip sawfly and control treatments. It damages atyalia, turnip, mustard, cabbage and other cruciferous cultures. Lizards attacked them at a higher rate than larvae and they were never rejected.

The fact that glucosinolates being removed causes reduced sensitivity to future possible host plants has been used to argue that rosad chemicals are important in specific larval patterning to future host plant options. Several of the sawfly larvae were rejected after an initial attack, demonstrating unpalatability to the lizards, while the Pieris larvae were not rejected.


The most important predators are Perilampus italicus Fabr. The turnip sawfly, Athalia rosae Linnaeus, is a pest on cruciferous crops.

Turnip sawfly

Retrieved 24 September Larvae of the second generation damage in July – August. Larva lives days. State agricultural publishing house. Imported crucifers, grown commercially, have been athaliia to suffer serious damage over several years for example, Brassica chinensis var.

This is to ensure that we give you the best experience possible.

The larva winters in the ground in a cocoon the depth is about cm. Embryonal period varies from 5 to 12 days. Turnip sawfly Scientific classification Kingdom: Control measures include eradication of weeds, under-winter plowing, destroying plants remains, trapping crops with following chemical treatments, insecticide treatments against larvae.

Female life span is about three weeks. Pests of agricultural crops and forest plantations. This differs from normal haplodiploid hymenoptera and after a further cross causing triploid males, resulted in evidence that sex determination is controlled by a single locus.

This has been shown to be an effective, chemical-based, defence against invertebrate predators. Retrieved from ” https: Its effectiveness was borne out in a test over ha in which it was sown 7 days before rape in a m band around the crop Vlasenko and Sushkova, It was considered to be a serious pest of turnips in England in sequences of hot summers, but less so in sequences of colder summers Benson, Wings are yellow at base and blackish at front border and outer half.


Yellow pupa mm is inserted into brown cylindrical cocoon.

During pupation period the ground humidity must be moderate. The head has a black segmented clavate apically antenna. Pupation takes place in April, lasting days.

Some experimental data to ecology of turnip sawfly. Its length is about mm. The sawfly fecundity varies from to eggs. The body of larva is wrinkled, covered with small warts. Cultural Control Methods to destroy over-wintering pre-pupae include crop rotation, destruction of crucifers and deep ploughing Hill, Tenthredinidae Insects described in Movement and colour may be important additional factors triggering the behaviour of vertebrate predators.

As a consequence of these periods of illumination, females developing from non-diapausing larvae would swarm in autumn at a time when the rape crop was no longer suitable for athala Saringer, Adult larva penetrates into the ground for athaliz. The species gives generations during a year; i.
