Seed-feeding insects impacting globemallow seed production

Hammon, Robert; Franklin, Melissa. 2012. Seed-feeding insects impacting globemallow seed production. Native Plants Journal. 13(2): 95-97.

Weevils (Anthonomus sphaeralciae Fall [Coleoptera: Curculionidae]), which attack flowers and developing seeds, can significantly impact globemallow Sphaeralcea spp. A. St.-Hil. (Malvaceae) seed production without a grower even noticing there was insect damage. This weevil damaged almost one-quarter of the flowers in a seed production field in Delta County, Colorado, during 2007.
