- ... Refractile spores of Bacillus popilliae, the causative agent of a milky disease of Japanese beetle (Popillia japonica) larvae, appear in liquid culture in the presence of activated carbon during the early part of the 2nd week of incubation. Forms resistant to drying occur during the 1st week when no refractile spores are seen. They usually number no more than a few hundred per milliliter and they ...

- ... The following is substantially the authors' abstract. Conventional Warburg vessels were used in Illinois to obtain oxygen-uptake data from healthy larvae of Popillia japonica Newm. and larvae infected with the milky disease caused by Bacillus popilliae. The rate of oxygen uptake, expressed as the oxygen at standard temperature and pressure taken up per hour of living larva, was 0.392 ±0.047 for he ...
