The CTLs, LLTs and DDM were determined for Lysathia n. sp. in South Africa. Results indicated that the species can tolerate exposure to sub-zero temperatures before death, complete multiple generations per year at sites around South Africa and that it develops quickly in cool conditions. All of these data explain why the agent was so successful at controlling its target weed throughout South Africa and suggest that it could be an agent to consider for release in other cold invaded sites on the American and European continents.
