Abstract

Four species of tortricids were reared from cultivated blueberries, Vaccinium corymbosum L. (Ericaceae), from four field sites in the province of Buenos Aires, Argentina: Clarkeulia bourquini (Clarke, 1949), Clarkeulia deceptiva (Clarke, 1949), Argyrotaenia sphaleropa (Meyrick, 1909), and Platynota meridionalis Brown, 2013. These are the first records of these polyphagous tortricids on Vaccinium. Larvae were discovered primarily on the flowers, buds, and fruit of the host plant, where they fed externally.
