Light Brown Apple Moth
Epiphyas postvittana

Light Brown Apple Moth (Epiphyas postvittana ) is an insect pest of ornamental plants and agricultural crops. It is a native of Australia and was first detected in California in 2007.

This leafroller moth is a generalist feeder and a prolific pest without natural predators or parasites in North America. If not completely eradicated while the moth population in the U.S. is relatively small, the long-term impacts to the environment and agricultural production could be considerable.
