Argyrotaenia sphaleropa (Meyrick,1909)

This leafroller moth is a pest of vineyards and orchards in temperate and subtropical parts of South America. Various fruit trees and blueberries are attacked. The caterpillars protect themselves by producing webbing and feed on the leaves, shoots, flowers or the surface of fruits.
