Seasonal abundance of nitidulid beetles infesting date plantations in Israel was studied through captures of adults in traps. Carpophilus mutilatus and C. hemipterus were found throughout autumn, winter and spring; in the summer their populations declined considerably. Urophorus humeralis predominated during the summer while Haptoncus luteolus was most abundant during late summer and autumn. Damage to ripening fruit by sap beetles is apparently inflicted mainly by H. luteolus and U. humeralis. © 1983, Springer Science + Business Media B.V.. All rights reserved.
