This European insect, Hemerophila Pariana Clerck, first appeared in the United States in West chester County, N. Y., in 1917 and in Greenwich and Stamford, Conn., in November, 1920. In 1921, first brood injury was prominent and adults were abundant in Greenwich and Stamford and before the close of the season records indicated that this insect occurred in all counties of Connecticut except Windham County. Late in 1922, unsprayed apple trees were brown from its attacks in the vicinity of New Haven and northward through Hartford. It was also observed in Windham County, Conn., and in Huntington and Amherst, Mass. Adult moths were very abundant on window screens in late fall and it is believed that it passes the winter in the adult stage, and that it spreads chiefly by adults moving with the prevailing winds. Dr. Felt reports an invasion just south of Albany, N. Y. It is believed to be in northern New Jersey, though definite proof is not at hand.
