Champ, B.R. (1966) Insects and mites associated with stored products in Queensland. 2. Lepidoptera. Queensland Journal of Agricultural and Animal Sciences, 23 (2). pp. 155-175.



Thirty-seven species of Lepidoptera of the families Pyralidae, Phycitidae, Galleriidae,Tortricidae, Gelechiidae, Cosmopterygidae, Oecophoridae, Lyoneiidae, Tineidae and Eriocraniidae are recorded from stored products in Queensland. Cadra cautella (Walk.) is the major lepidopterous pest of grain, peanuts and similar commodities on farms, in bulk and bag storages, and in warehouses in southern and central Queensland. It is also the major species concerned with losses of processed food in homes. In North Queensland, Corcyra cephalonica (Staint.) assumes greater importance.
