The lucerne flea or clover springtail is best know in this State as a pest of clover pastures, but various plants, including many types of vegetables, are also liable to attack. The insect is of European origin, being widely distributed over that continent. It occurs also on the north coast of Africa, in the Argentine, and in all the Australian States with the exception of Queensland.
