IMPORTANT: Do not include lures for other target species in the trap when surveying for this target.
The leaf-rolling behavior of C. aporema can be mistaken for that of Ecdytolopha fabivora. However, C. aporema attacks young leaflets, while E. fabivora is commonly found on fully developed leaves. Ecdytolopha fabivora is a legume pest found throughout Central and South America.
Other species of Crocidosema occur in the United States, especially in the southeast. Crocidosema plebejana looks similar but primarily infests mallow (Malvaceae). It is distributed throughout the world and in the United States; it is present across much of the southern United States. Crocidosema aporema is distinguished from other species of Crocidosema, like C. plebejana, by dissecting its female or male genitalia.
In the United States, species that may be found in traps that are most likely to be confused with C. aporema include Bactra verutana, Olethreutes spp., Pelochrista fiskeana, Proteoteras spp., Pseudexentera faracana, Gretchena spp., Epinotia spp., and Catastega spp.
