Epirrita autumnata (Borkhausen) - (autumnal moth)

The moth is an important pest of birch in northern Europe, attacking mainly mountain birch (Betula pubescens ssp. czerepanovii). Serious outbreaks have been recorded every 9-10 years with natural enemies apparently playing a key role in regulating the outbreaks. Rapid-induced resistance of the host trees is also important.
