Abstract
The leaf-miners Leucoptera meyricki Ghesq. and L. caffeina Meyr. are major pests of unshaded and shaded Arabica coffee in K en ya and Tanzania. Their biology has been reviewed by Crowe (1964) and Bigger (1967). Bess (1964) and Evans (1966) studied leaf-miner moth and parasite populations in sprayed and unsprayed coffee, and Bigger & Tapley (1969) investigated the role of parasites and weather factors in population fluctuations.
