- ... Larval and adult waterlily leaf beetles, Pyrrhalta (Galerucella) nymphaeae (Coleoptera: Chrysomelidae), feed on the upper leaf surface of water lilies, Nuphar luteum (Nymphaeaceae), which grow along parts of the Ogeechee River. The purpose of this study was to estimate secondary production of the beetle and its impact on leaf and nutrient dynamics. We studied the population densities and instar di ...
