Abstract: The objective of this article is to find out the morphometric measurement of Hog Plum Leaf Beetle Podontia 14-punctata (Chrysomelidae: Coleoptera). The result showed that the mean length and breadth of the 1st, 2nd, 3rd, 4th instars larvae were 1.93, 10.02, 12.0, 20.42 mm and 0.99, 1.48, 3.41, 6.55 mm respectively and the weight were 4.367, 24.695, 75.282, 315.7 mg respectively. The average length breadth and weight of male pupae were 12.7, 6.90 mm and 1.75 g, respectively and female pupae were 14.5, 8.5 mm and 2.272 g, respectively. The average length of antenna of male and female were 7.1 and 8.05 mm, respectively. The length of 3rd legs or long leg of male and female beetle was 12.0 and 13.1mm, respectively. The length of fore wing (elytra) and hind wing in male were 11.6 and 18.0 mm and female were 13.1 and 21.5 mm, respectively. The average length and breadth of abdomen of male and female were 9.2, 7.05 mm and 11.1 and 7.6 mm respectively. The length of head of male and female were 5.0 and 5.6 mm, respectively.
