Lissorhoptrus oryzaphilus

Rice water weevil is the most economically damaging of the invertebrate pests found in California. Root pruning by larvae is the major cause of reduced yields. Plants with damaged roots may become stunted and lose yield through reduction of tillers and panicles or because maturity is delayed. Reduced tillering and slower growth also allow weeds to become better established.
