The white-pine shoot borer (Eucosma gloriola Heinrich) was described from Connecticut collections on white pine in 1930. It was collected only a year later in Quebec and misidentified as Nantucket pine moth (Rhyacionia frustrana (Comst.)). This confusion has been common wherever the damage or immature insect was observed on hard pines. Eucosma gloriola larvae were found boring in the pith of Scotch pine terminals at Knauers, Pennsylvania, in 1957, 1958, and 1959. Other conifers also harbored this pest. Its hosts, distribution, description of damage, fragmentary notes on the life history, and mention of a new species of parasite have been brought together to hasten the recognition and eventually the control of this important pest of pines.
