Résumé
In southern Arizona, adults and larvae of Xeranobium Fall (Coleoptera : Anobiidae) and larvae of Sonia filiana Busck (Lepidoptera : Olethreutidae) were removed from the roots of Haplopappus tenuisectus (Greene) Blake (Compositae). Larvae of Eucosma ridingsana Robinson (Lepidoptera : Olethreutidae) were removed from the roots of Gutierrezia microcephala (DC.) A. Gray, G. sarothrae (Pursh) Britt. & Rusby, and G. serotina Greene (Compositae). Caterpillars of the family Tineidae (Lepidoptera) were taken from the roots of H. tenuisectus and Gutierrezia spp. Larvae of all species, except the tineid moth, were reared to adults on an artificial diet. The larvae are described and comments on recognition characters are included. Macrocentrus pallisteri DeGant (Hymenoptera : Braconidae) was reared from Sonia filiana and Eucosma ridingsana.
