Paranthrene tabaniformis (Rottemburg) - (poplar clearwing moth)

This clearwing moth is widely distributed in Europe and temperate parts of Asia. It has been also reported from parts of North America and northern Africa. The larvae tunnel inside young shoots and branches of poplar trees, causing swelling of the branches and deformations. Especially young trees in nurseries are affected. The adults have a wingspan of about 3 cm.
