      Abstract

      Setothosea assigna is an economically important insect pest on oil palm plantation. In severe infestation, S. assigna larvae consume all foliage and leave only mid rib of the frond, causing setback of fruit production for a year. Recently, natural epidemics among S. assigna larvae suspected of viral infection have been occurred in Indonesia. This paper presents the information about epidemic diseases on S. assigna caused by Thosea assigna virus. This type of virus has been isolated from S.assigna death larvae.
