Leguminivora glycinivorella (Matsumura, 1900) - (soybean pod-borer)

This moth is an important pest of soybeans in eastern Asia. Other legumes may also be attacked. Eggs are laid on the soybean pods and the young larvae bore into the pods and develop inside, feeding on the seeds. Yield losses may reach up to 40% during outbreaks. In addition, a mixture of healthy and infested seeds has a low quality. The adult moth has a wingspan of around 15 mm. The forewings are brownish with scattered darker marks.

Several other species may be called "soybean pod-borer" (e.g. Maruca vitrata).
