  <dc:description>Seasonality, host range, and biology of Altica himalayensis Chen are detailed. The species is one of the most dominant leaf beetle (Chrysomelidae: Coleoptera) found in the Kashmir valley. A major pest of Rumex nepalensis (locally known as Abuji), 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 Polygonium aviculare (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 Altica from India is also provided herewith.</dc:description>
