Field population densities of C. singularis do not exceed 50 adults per m2 (Schlettwein, 1985), a level that is insufficient to significantly damage salvinia (Room, 1990). 1979. Croxdale, J. G. 1981. We highly recommend reviewing metadata files prior to interpreting these data. This insect has not been a useful biological control agent (Julien and Griffiths, 1998). 53. comm.). Salvinia has the potential to spread to much of Australia and is regarded as a serious threat to waterways and irrigation areas because it: 1. disrupts aquatic ecosystems, seriously affecting native animals and plant life; 2. decreases the quality of water by causing odours, accumulation of organic matter and stag… Entomophaga 29: 267-273.

Philippines); and giant salvinia, water spangles, or floating fern (in the United States). This will provide a means of identifying Salvinia species should any new invasions occur in the United States or elsewhere. It is occasionally abundant on small waterhyacinth plants, feeding within inflated leaf petioles (Knopf and Habeck, 1976). 1998. On salvinia, temperature and plant quality interact to determine rates of insect growth, number of larval instars, fecundity, and survival (Taylor and Sands, 1986; Taylor, 1984, 1988, 1989). 4. In the field the plant grows at pH values from 5.2 to 9.5 (Holm et al., 1977; Mitchell et al., 1980). V. Salvinia      sprucei Kuhn. This weevil was known to feed on various South American Salvinia species and had been used unsuccessfully as a biological control agent for salvinia during the 1970s (Julien and Griffiths, 1998). The undersides of adjacent leaves are in contact with each other.

The first surveys for potential biological control agents for S. molesta were conducted in Trinidad, Guyana and northeastern Brazil from 1961 to 1963 (Bennett, 1966), and in Argentina prior to 1975 (Bennett, 1975), where species in the S. auriculata complex other than S. molesta occur. Ball and A.O. 1977. (T. Doyle, LA, pers. Optimum pH for growth is 6.0 (Cary and Weerts, 1984). The lower lethal temperature at which 50% of the adult population would be expected to die is -5.2ºC (Reaney 1999). In developing countries, the impact of salvinia can be devastating because weed mats block the use of. Detailed descriptions are given in Calder and Sands (1985) of the features that distinguish this species from C. singularis. It has since become established in India (Cook and Gut, 1971), Australia (Room and Julien, 1995), Papua New Guinea (Mitchell, 1979), Cuba, Trinidad, Guyana, Columbia (Holm et al., 1979), South Africa (Cilliers, 1991), Botswana (Edwards and Thomas, 1977), Kenya, Zambia (Mitchell and Tur, 1975), Namibia (Forno and Smith, 1999), Madagascar (Room and Julien, 1995), Ghana and Cote D’Ivoire (M.

It forms dense mats over lakes and slow moving rivers and causes large economic losses and a wide range of ecological problems to native species and communities. Biology Plant form. Aquarium plant from tissue culture in closed cup. S. molesta can survive on a mud bank for a short period of time, but because of the dry conditions it cannot live there permanently. II. This weevil was collected from S. minima in Florida by scientists from the USDA, ARS Invasive Plant Research Laboratory and released at sites in Liberty, Bridge City, and Toledo Bend Reservoir in Texas, and at Salter Creek in Louisiana during 1999. It is assumed that these weevils were accidentally introduced from South America, because of the lack of any earlier U.S. records and the adventive status of its host plant, S. minima. The ideal temperature range for reproduction is 73° to 81°F (23° to 27°C), but adults can feed from 55° to 91°F (13° to 33°C). It has been introduced into the south of the US, where it is considered an invasive aquatic weed. Mats in Louisiana have been measured as thick as 20 - 25 cm (Montz 1989).

Species within this complex are characterized by the presence of divided but apically joined "basket" hairs on the abaxial surface, which produce an "egg-beater-like" appearance (Fig. The Science Press, New York.

So, if you are looking for an aquarium floating plant that can add bright colors to your aquarium, then normal salvinia isn’t the best choice for you. Salvinia minima has a history of being sold in the nursery trade, and is still widely available on the internet in spite of its invasive nature (Forno et al. Under favourable conditions (nutrient-rich water with a low current) it grows extremely fast and has to be netted out at regular intervals to prevent it from covering the entire water surface. Biological Control of Salvinia molesta in Sri Lanka: An Assessment of Costs      and Benefits. Sands, D. P. A. and R. C. Kassulke. Eggs (0.5 x 0.24 mm) are laid singly in cavities excavated by adults in lower leaves, developing leaves, rhizomes, and ‘roots.’ At 25.5ºC, females lay one egg every two to five days for at least 60 days (Forno et al.., 1983). At this time the true identity and the native range of S. molesta were not known. The first three, Cyrtobagous singularis Hustache, Paulinia acuminata (De Geer), and Samea multiplicalis (Guenée) (identified during the early exploration [Bennett, 1966]) have not been successful control agents. Biology and Ecology of Key Natural Enemies, Salvinia weevils, Cyrtobagous salviniae and C. singularis (Coleoptera: Curculionidae), The genus Cyrtobagous Hustache was originally thought to be monotypic, containing only the species C. singularis. Forno, I. W. 1983. Am. The dependence of development and fecundity of Samea multiplicalis on early      larval nitrogen intake. Out of water, eggs fail to hatch (Bennett, 1966). C.H. Chisholm (1979) demonstrated that densities of more than 85 P. acuminata per m2 feeding for 24 days were required to reduce production of new leaves. The table contains hyperlinks to collections tables of specimens based on the states, years, and drainages selected. Water under mats of salvinia has a lower oxygen concentration (due to reduced surface area of water available for oxygenation, inhibition of photosynthesis by submerged plants, and consumption of dissolved oxygen by decaying salvinia), higher carbon dioxide and hydrogen sulphide concentrations, lower pH, and higher temperatures than nearby open water (Mitchell, 1978; Thomas and Room, 1986). Johnson, D. M. 1993. Early plants in Florida likely entered natural areas from flooding of cultivated pools or through intentional release (Jacono et al 2001).

An eight-year study at Jean Lafitte National Historic Park, Louisiana, found complete displacement of native Lemna species by Salvinia minima.

Canberra, Australia. Aquatic Botany 24:      213-232. Northern Landscapes Occasional Papers No. Taylor, M. F. J. Population densities of C. salviniae are capable of reaching 300 adults and 900 larvae per m2, levels estimated as necessary for control (Room, 1988, 1990; Room and Thomas, 1985). Comparative studies determined that this was a new species, subsequently named C. salviniae (Fig. Canadian Journal of Botany 56: 1982-1991. Julien, M. H. and M. W. Griffiths (eds.). It occurs between the latitudes 24005’ S and 32005’ S; at altitudes 0 to 500 meters; and up to 200 km inland (Map 1). In the United States, S. molesta is a new problem so evaluations are premature. This weevil now controls the weed in most tropical and subtropical areas (Fig. Madeira P T, Jacono C C, Tipping P, Van T K, Center T D, 2003. However, it was most likely introduced to the US in the 1920s. Larvae also will eat mature waterlettuce fruits and consequently destroy enclosed seeds. A., P. W. Tipping, T. D. Center, and F. Driver. It is the user's responsibility to use these data consistent with their intended purpose and within stated limitations. Using this information as a guide, Room and Julien (1995) estimated that the annual benefits gained from successful biological control of salvinia worldwide were approximately $150 million U.S. 1987. 12:10–13. Salvinia is 95% water by weight and biomass of living shoots can exceed 600 g/m2 of dry weight, while biomass of living and dead shoots and ‘roots’ may exceed 1,600 g/m2 of dry weight or 400 t/ha of fresh weight (Room and Julien, 1995). The native range of Salvinia molesta includes a relatively small area (20,000 km2) in southeastern Brazil, including the states of Sao Paulo, Paraná, Santa Catarina and Rio Grande do Sul.
