We selected two species of rolled-leaf beetles, the first species, Cephaloleia belti, is polyphagous, feeding on 18 host plants in the order Zingiberales. The second species, Chelobasis bicolor, feeds only on four host plants in the family Heliconiaceae (Garcia-Robledo, Erickson, Staines, Erwin, & Kress, 2013; Schmitt & Frank, 2013).

Heliconias are grown for cut flower and landscape plants and it belongs to a morphologically diverse and species rich order Zingiberales. According to Goel (2004) Heliconias are generally known as "wild plantain" or "lobster's claw" and are native to neotropical regions of Central and South America and some Caribbean countries.
