A search for arthropods attacking water lettuce (Pistia stratiotes L.) was carried out, at some locations on Penang Island and Kuala Kedah, Malaysia The objective of the search was to look for appropriate candidate biological control agents of this aquatic weed. Several arthropods were found attacking the weed, amongst them, were Proxenus hennia Swinhoe (Lepidoptera: Noctuidae) ,and Nymphula responsalis Wlk.
