The world distribution of Epichoristodes acerbella (Wlk.) and the damage it causes to ornamental plants, especially carnations, are briefly reviewed. This tortricid was found for the first time in Spain in early summer 1975 on a crop of carnations near Barcelona, and was found there again in spring 1976. It is thought likely that it was introduced with carnation slips imported from Italy or France.
