Recorded from Nepal, Sikkim, Orissa, Bombay, Coonoor, Ceylon. We have it from the Shevaroys, Nilgiris, Vizagapatam and Coimbatore. It is found on coffee, coconut and Erythrina, but does little damage as a rule. According to Green, the form scabiosae has been found at Veyangoda (Ceylon) defoliating Erythrina, areca-nut, coconut and various shade trees. We have specimens of punctatus from Burdwan, on jute ; and Lashio (Upper Burma).
Kirby splits this up into three species, miliaris, punctatus and scabiosae, but it seems impossible to separate them satisfactorily.
