    were exposed to S. feltiae (= Neoaplectana carpocapsae) and S. glaseri in soil. S. feltiae caused significantly higher mortality in L. californicus larvae than did S. glaseri but both nematodes were equally effective against Leptinotarsa decemlineata larvae. The minimum concentration of S. feltiae for 100% mortality of L. decemlineata larvae after 13 days was 157 nematodes/cm2 soil and the LC50 based on 6-day mortality was 47.5 nematodes/cm2; 100% mortality of Limonius californicus larvae was not achieved with the highest concentration tested (393 nematodes/cm2). In field tests, S. feltiae applied to the soil surface at the rates of 155 and 310 nematodes/cm2 soil caused 59% and 71% mortality respectively of late 4th-instar spring generation Leptinotarsa decemlineata and 28% and 29% mortality respectively of Limonius californicus. No infection was obtained following reinfestation with summer-generation larvae.
