Expanding geographical range of Cactoblastis cactorum (Lepidoptera: Pyralidae) in North America
Florida Entomologist 85 (3), 527-528
Abstract: Observational surveys and virgin female-baited traps have identified the continued spread of Cactoblastis cactorum from the Florida Keys northward along the Atlantic and Gulf Coasts of the USA. The moth has infested native and ornamental cacti north to Charleston, SC, and west to St. George Island, FL. A newly discovered population of endangered Opuntia corallicola was surveyed in southern Florida and found free of moth infestation.
