Harmonia axyridis is a coccinellid of Asian origin that has recently invaded substantial parts of Europe
To deepen their understanding on chemical protection of Calvia spp. and the predation risk by H. axyridis, the authors tested for susceptibility and palatability of Calvia spp. and H. axyridis eggs against predation by H. axyridis neonate larvae.
