Sampling data were subjected to several frequency distribution models to determine the spatial distribution patterns of Phyllophaga crinita (Burm.) on sorghum. The negative binomial distribution fitted the data well and was used to devise a sequential sampling plan for pre-planting surveys to assist in the making of pest management decisions. The plan is based on infested and uninfested samples, and counts of the total number of larvae per sample are not required
