The moth Carposina autologa Meyrick was introduced from Australia to South Africa to reduce accumulated seed on the weed Hakea sericea Schrader. The previously devised methods of releasing the moth are reviewed, its level of establishment monitored at two sites, and reasons are given for the suspension of this programme in 1983.
