Profenusa canadensis (Marlatt), often referred to as the cherry, hawthorn, or cherry and hawthorn sawfly leaf miner, is a serious pest of the English Morello cherry, Prunus cerasus var. austeria L., and of the cockspur hawthorn, Cratraegus crus-galli L. The destructive stage of this pest is a greenish larva that eats the tissue between the epidermal layers of a leaf. In the case of serious infestations of Profenusa canadensis, one, two, or even three sawfly leaf miners may be present in a high percentage of the leaves and a substantial part of the foliage present during the early part of the growing season may be destroyed.
