Depressaria pastinacella (Duponchel, 1838) - (parsnip webworm)
This moth attacks parsnip (Pastinaca) in various regions. Other genera of Apiaceae may also become infested, including carrots and celery. However, significant damage in Europe is rare and has been mainly recorded from North America. The larvae feed on the flowers, fruits and upper stalks, forming silken webs. After passing through 6 larval stages, the fully grown larvae pupate in the stalk. The total development time from egg to adult lasts around 6 weeks. The adults are the overwintering stage.
The adult moth is flat and has a wingspan of between 20 and 30 mm. The colour is light brown, with darker areas on the forewings. The larvae are also light brown with black dots and a black head.
