Genera naturalised in southern Africa

List from Vári et al. (2002).

Mimorista

Mimorista pulchellalis was introduced to South Africa for the biological control of Opuntia aurantiaca (Jointed cactus). It became established for a few years but not in large numbers and its larvae inflict relatively minor damage on Jointed cactus plants. It is now regarded as not having become established.
