Red pumpkin beetle

Aulacophora foveicollis

Seedlings may be completely destroyed by adult feeding, older plants have foliage riddled with holes or completely defoliated, and the floral parts, including anthers are nibbled. Feeding by larvae causes rotting and withering of the roots and stems. The surface of young fruit may show feeding marks caused by the adults and the undersurface of fruits where they touch the soil surface may have indications of larval tunnels in the surface.
