Ectropis obliqua Warren, 1894 - (tea geometrid)

The moth is an important pest of tea in southern China with the larvae feeding on the leaves and shoots. The damage causes yield and quality losses. There may be up to 6-7 generations per growing season. Insecticides are mainly used for control, but the development of pesticide resistance has been a problem. Cultural methods like interplanting tea with Rosmarinus officinalis are under development.
