Priyanka Bapurao Patil and Sunil Madhukar Gaikwad*

ABSTRACT

Most of the Coccinellid beetles are beneficial insects because they are predators of many agricultural crop pests. The Illeis bielawskii is a mycophagous ladybird beetle feeding on powdery mildews of many crops. This species was earlier reported only from state Karnataka, India. This species is now reported for the first time in Kolhapur, Maharashtra, India and hence, it is an addition to the Fauna of Maharashtra. Being a mycophagous insect, I. bielawskii can be used to control powdery mildew disease of crops through the IPM program. Present communication provides diagnostics of habitus with color photographs.

Keywords: Coccinellidae, mycophagous, Illies bielawskii, Kolhapur.
