A new occasional pest: the American dried-plant moth

A new occasional pest: the American dried-plant moth

Phytoma (368): 40-41

Larvae of Idaea bonifata are reported infesting herbarium specimens in France on 4 occasions in 1968-82. This geometrid is a native of the south-western USA and Mexico and has occasionally been reported from Europe before. The adult, larva and pupa are illustrated and notes on the biology and injuriousness are provided. The larvae appear to develop exclusively on dry plants, attacking the flowers, leaves, roots and rhizomes. Seven kinds of dried plants that were infested in France are listed.
