Rice is one of the major cereal crops grown in Himachal Pradesh (India) and isfrequently attacked by the rice hispa beetle,
Dicladispa armigera
Olivier (Sharma et al2010). Two new alternate hosts,
Panicum dichotomiflorum
Michx. and
Brachiaria ramosa
 (L.), of rice hispa were recorded from the Palampur region of Himachal Pradesh. Ricehispa beetles were found to survive on these hosts in the absence of rice. Both adultsand larvae fed and completed development on
P. dichotomiflorum
(Fig. 1), whereas onlyadult feeding was observed on
B. ramosa
(Fig. 2).
