various sampling methods, especially the use of light and field emergence traps, combined with literature references to observed damage, provide estimates of the abundance and importance of the species concerned. Thirty-four species, representing four lepidopterous families, are listed in tabular form. Crambus topiarius Zell.,Crymodes devastator (Brace), and Chionodes psiloptera (Busck) were found particularly destructive, and these, together with three other important species, are separately discussed. Temperature, humidity, and precipitation data were used in studying the relationship of climatic factors to light trap catches of adults.
