Enarmonia formosana (Scopoli, 1763)

cherry-bark moth

on Rosaceae

parasite

The larva bores in the bark, especially in the thick bark at the foot of older trees en in places where the bark already is swollen by old wounds or cankers. The presence of the larve in its turn causes gumming and loosening of the bark. Reddish brown frass in bark fissures betrays the presence of the larva.
