Abstract:A gold colored sport of Laspeyresia pomonella (L.), colonized in the Yakima laboratory, was comparable in mating activity in laboratory tests to the gray phenotype. However, in release-recapture studies in the field, only 1.4% of the released gold males were recaptured; 10.8% of the released gray males were recaptured.
