Abstract: A novel volumetric injection method was developed for measuring damage to air potato tubers, Dioscorea bulbifera (Dioscoreaceae), by neonate Lilioceris egena larvae (Coleoptera: Chrysomelidae). This technique fills a methodological void for ecologists needing to quantify insect damage to above‐ and belowground plant storage organs.
