Our 2023 fundraiser has arrived, and we need your help!
We depend on donations to keep Butterflies and Moths of North America online and free. Your support is vital to the project. Please make a recurring or one-time donation to sustain this valuable source of information. Thank you!
Observation notes: The caterpillar ate Russian Elm (Ulmus laevis) and spent the majority of its time inside of a rolled leaf, hence the common name Oblique Banded Leafroller. This moth hatched from its pupa in 8 days. It was then released when its wings fully developed. The empty pupa in the picture is the pupa of the moth.
