In the article, ``Inheritance of Phosphine Resistance in Tribolium castaneum (Coleoptera: Tenebrionidae),'' by Mervyn Bengston, Patrick J. Collins, Gregory J. Daglish, Vivienne L. Hallman, Rosemary Kopittke, and Hervoika Pavic, published in the Journal of Economic Entomology, 92(1): 17–20, the last line of the abstract reads:``Low-level resistance typical of Australian populations of T. castaneum is conferred by 1 gene." This should read as follows: ``Low-level resistance typical of Australian populations of T. castaneum is conferred by [lt]1 gene." The ESA staff regrets the error.
