I am interested in a grasshopper called Gesonula punctifrons , which lives on taro (Colocasia esculenta, Araceae).

I will use this forum to begin recording literature research on the subject. This activity is part of the work of the Wild Taro Research Project , which is hosted here by the Research Cooperative.

If anyone can point out further relevant literature or current research, please comment or contact me directly!

Thanks, Peter.
