Résumé

Two halticine flea beetles,Longitarsus echii Koch andLongitarsus aeneus Kutsch, occurring on the boraginaceous plantEchium plantagineum L. in the western Mediterranean region are potential biological control agents in Australia where the plant has become a weed (Paterson's curse). The adults of both species feed by making “shot holes” in the leaves. The larvae of both species attack the roots ofEchium, those ofL. echii feeding more centrally in the root than those ofL. aeneus which attack the outer cortex and rootlets. Both species are univoltine. The host restrictions of both flea beetles as adults and as larvae were tested using the criteria already established for theEchium leaf minerDialectica scalariella Zeller (Wapshere & Kirk, 1977). This testing established that it would be safe to introduce the 2 insects into Australia for the biological control ofE. plantagineum and they are now under quarantine.
