. Muryati, M. Istianto, and Affandi. 2010. Some Bioecological Aspects of Mango Stem Borer.Stem borer is the most important pest on mango in the wet lowland area. The information about this pest was stillvery limited, therefore, it is difficult to arrange its control strategy. The research were intended to collect data on thespecies of stem borer from some locations, its damage severity on some mango varieties as well as its natural enemies.The study was conducted by survey method from January 2005 to December 2006. The research revealed that thestem borer found in some locations was dominated by Rhytidodera integra (Coleoptera: Cerambycidae) (Kolbe 1886).Besides this species, another Cerambycidae, i.e. Palimna annulata Oliver was also found at Aripan Research Stationof Indonesian Tropical Fruit Research Institute. Both species have a similar behavior. The stem borer attacked almostall varieties that were found in research locations. The damage severity of mango by stem borer was 8.83 and 10.36%in West Sumatera and in North Sumatera, respectively. The most severe damage of mango variety in West Sumaterawas Cengkir (23.26%), while in North Sumatera was Podang (19.01%). Five species of natural enemies were foundduring the study. The results of this experiment can be used as initial information to control mango stem borer
