Coccinia grandis, a native of east Africa, has been introdcued and naturalized in different parts of tropical Asia, Pacific and the Americas, but it has become invasive only in the Hawiian and Mariana Islands of the pacific. The recent release of M. oedipus is expected to supplement the effect of A. coccinea. Biological control has been the most sustainable method available for C. grandis than all the other options explored so far.
