Bhattacharya, A., Naqvi, A.H., Sen, A.K., & Mishra, Y.D. 1998 Artificial rearing of Pseudohypatopa pulverea Meyr. - a predator of lac insect, Kerria lacca (Kerr).. Journal of Entomological Research. New Delhi 22: 83-87.

Notes: Nutrition; biological characteristics i.e., duration of each instar, and morphological parameters such as length of larvae, width of head capsule and dimension of adult reared in artificial diets were at par with those reared under natural condition. The adult moths which laid eggs only on lac encrusted twigs in nature were made to lay eggs on artificial substrates, (sand and emery paper).
