Abstract

From January 2010 to December 2011, samples of leaves from Kinno, Musambi and Feutral were taken from the five tehsils of district Sargodha including Sargodha, Bahalwal, Silanwalli, Sahiwal and kotmomin to study the population trends in citrus leafminer (CLM), Phyllocnistis citrella Stainton (Lepidoptera: Gracillariidae) and its correlation with snail population. The present study also shows the population density of citrus leaf miner in different seasons of Sargodha district, Pakistan. Population of snails on leaves was recorded as 1.322, 1.083, and 1.342 in Feutral, Kinno and Masambi, respectively in its mean values. The statistical analysis shows that there is strong correlation in the seasonal fluctuation in the population density of snails and of snail's population with citrus leaf miner (Phyllocnistis citrella, Stainton).
