Abstract: <i style="">Spilarctia obliqua</i> nucleopolyhedrosis virus (SoNPV) has been found effective against <i style="">S. obliqua</i> (Walker) as well as <i style="">Porthesia xanthorrhoea</i> Kollar. LC<sub>50</sub> concentration of <i style="">S. obliqua</i> <i style="">S</i>oNPV against <i style="">S. obliqua</i> and <i style="">P. xanthorrhoea</i> was 2.5×10<sup>4</sup> and 3.7×10<sup>4</sup> POBs/ml, respectively. LT<sub>50</sub> of SoNPV against <i style="">S. obliqua</i> was 5.73 days, while it was 6.98 days for <i style="">P. xanthorrhoea</i>. Cross infectivity of SoNPV against <i style="">P. xanthorrhoea</i> and ease of its mass production may make it an ideal biopesticide.
