Abstract The common scarabs associated with peanuts in southern Queensland are Heteronyx piceus Blanchard, H. rugosipennis Macleay, Sericesthis ino (Blackburn) and S. suturalis (Macleay) in the South Burnett, and Pseudoheteronyx basicollis Lea, H. sp. nr rugosipennis and S. suturalis at Clifton on the Darling Downs. A key to larvae of these species is presented. In the South Burnett, H. piceus is the major pest species, comprising 90% of larval populations under peanuts.
