Diabrotica virgifera virgifera (Western corn rootworm) (PGI_DIABVI_V3a)

About Diabrotica virgifera virgifera

The Western corn rootworm, Diabrotica virgifera virgifera, is one of the most devastating corn rootworm species in North America, especially in the midwestern corn-growing areas such as Iowa. A related species, the Northern corn rootworm, D. barberi, co-inhabits in much of the range and is fairly similar in biology.
