Abstract/Contents:Nineteen collections of white grubs were taken from turfs (primarily bermudagrass) of golf courses, residences, parks, and research grass plots from experimental turfs in Collins, Dallas, Tarrant, and Tom Green Counties, Texas on various dates during 1979-1982. Southern masked chafer larvae were recovered from 15 of 19 collections (17 sites) from turf. This species was present in turf from all four counties sampled. For all 19 collections, an overall mean of 19% of the white grubs collected were C. immaculata, the rest were primarily Phyllophaga crinita. If data from the four collections from which no C. immaculata were recovered are excluded, the infestations in the other 15 collections averaged 50 percent C. immaculata. The authors also offer as an appropriate common name for Phyllopohaga crinita (Burmeister), "Southwestern grass scarab".
