    <description descriptionType="Abstract">&lt;p&gt;&lt;strong&gt;Seasonality, host range, and biology of &lt;em&gt;Altica himalayensis&lt;/em&gt; Chen are detailed. The species is one of the most dominant leaf beetle (Chrysomelidae: Coleoptera) found in the Kashmir valley. A major pest of &lt;em&gt;Rumex nepalensis&lt;/em&gt; (locally known as &lt;em&gt;Abuji&lt;/em&gt;), plant is used as a source of food, astringent qualities, and for dyeing purposes. During the present study the pest was also found to feed on &lt;em&gt;Polygonium aviculare&lt;/em&gt; (new host plant) and adults were also found to exert considerable damage to a number of other major crops including, apricot, almond, apple, strawberry, and walnut. Updated checklist and taxonomic status of the genus &lt;em&gt;Altica&lt;/em&gt; from India is also provided herewith.&lt;/strong&gt;&lt;/p&gt;</description>
