Rhyacionia buoliana (Denis & Schiffermüller, 1775) - (pine shoot moth)

This moth is a pest of pine trees in Europe, northern Africa and temperate parts of Asia. It has been introduced into North America around 1914, from where it spread to parts of Central and South America. It can cause serious damage to young pine plantations, destroying the leaders and causing stunting and deformations. The young larvae first feed on the needles, forming webbing at their base. The older larvae bore into the shoots and eventually overwinter there. The forewings of the adults have a wing-span of around 20 mm and are orange with lighter, silvery patches.
