Host plants. According to Mathur (1975) the common name of the host plant in Bengal is ‘khasare’. No information was found with this local plant name, but a similar name ‘khesari’ refers to Lathyrus sativus   L. ( Fabaceae   ) (E. Gauda, personal communication).

Distribution. India (Bengal) ( Mathur, 1975), (Madras) ( Kandasamy, 1986).

Comments. The description provided by Mathur (1975) agrees with P. bifasciata Kuwayama   diVering only in body setiferation. Only two long setae on genae were mentioned by Mathur (1975) for P. phalaki Mathur   , whereas the head of P. bifasciata Kuwayama   is completely covered by long setae. No material of the former was available for examination.
