Abstract

The hemp (Cannabis sativa) — an unknown food plant of Aglaope infausta (L.) (Lep., Zygaenidae)?

The position ofPsyche cannabinella DOUMERC 1860 in the system of Lepidoptera has not been elucidated by such authorities of the past century asHerrich-Schäffer and the species remained a mystery till now.Psyche cannabinella as a historical pest of the hemp in France must — according to the diagnosis — differ substantially from all modern pests so far they are known to attack that host plant. A comparison of the original description ofPsyche cannabinella with a standard verbal and figural definition ofAglaope infausta indicates the probable identity of the two species. The lacking proof should now be done experimentally to the effect whether or not the larvae ofAglaope infausta may feed on hemp flowers and fruits.
