Urticating caterpillars; biology, economic and medical importance


Urticating caterpillars; biology, economic and medical importance



Bulletin de la Societe des Sciences Naturelles de l'Ouest de la France 73: 29-41



ISSN/ISBN: 0373-3025

Accounts are given of the biology of Euproctis chrysorrhoea (L.), Thaumetopoea processionea (L.) and T. pityocampa (Schiff.), the 3 species of moths occurring in western France of which the larvae have urticating hairs that can produce dermatological reactions in man. E. chrysorrhoea was abundant in the Nantes area and to the north of it from 1973 to 1975 and T. processionea was abundant in 1972-73 in Loire Atlantique.
