Abstract: The oriental armyworm, Mythimna separata (Walker) is a typical, seasonal, long distance, migratory insect pest that causes significant damage to food crops inChinaand other parts of Asia andOceania. This species has a long history inChinawhere its broad distribution and capacity for multigenerational infestation causes severe crop loss. This paper reviews four aspects of research on the oriental armyworm in China; firstly, research on the regularity of its overwintering, migration and occurrence in China, secondly, research on the environmental, physiological, hormonal, genetic, and molecular factors involved in the regulation of migration, thirdly, established monitoring and forecasting techniques based on the regularity of overwintering, migration and the species’ biology, and finally, research on developing a regional integrated pest management system for the species. Future prospects for research on this species are evaluated based on the current state of knowledge in the above four areas and new developments in entomological technology.
