Notes on Taxonomy and Nomenclature Top of page Prostephanus truncatus was first described by Horn, as Dinoderus truncatus, and has been referred to as Stephanopachys truncatus by Back and Cotton ().The genus Prostephanus was erected by Lesne () to accommodate this and three other species; P.

truncatus is the only one of these species. Prostephanus truncatus pest status in Africa is high and the degree of infestation and. damage vary between regions. The variation in pest status is due to climatic conditions, food sources, and degree. of storage infra-structure development and efficacy of control methods.

Prostephanus truncatus has established in 20 African countries. Its temporal and spatial dispersion is unpredictable and depends on ecological factors, maize and dry cassava trade routes.

Professor Rick Hodges has worked for the Natural Resources Institute, and its predecessor organisations, for thirty five years. He is a specialist in the postharvest management of durable agricultural commodities and for six years was as a full-time commodity management advisor to grain marketing boards in West Africa (Mali) and South East Asia (Indonesia).

The Morrison Lab focuses on exploring the chemical ecology, behavior, biological control, and IPM of insects in the agricultural postharvest supply chain. The overarching goal of the lab's research program is to develop behaviorally-based management strategies that will help decrease insecticide inputs, decrease postharvest losses, and strengthen global food security.

Hence, the evaluation of alternative control agents against this species is essential. Very few data are also available on the susceptibility of P.

The larger grain borer (LGB), Prostephanus truncatus (Horn) (Coleoptera: Bostrichidae) is a pest of stored products and reduces the storage period of maize kernels, from about 10 to 12 months to approximately 6 months with pest infestation.
