Submitted by: tirvine2020
Specimen type: Photograph
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.
