Abstract

Sitochroa palealis (Denis and Schiffermüller, 1775) (Lepidoptera: Crambidae), a newly detected crambid moth in the United States, is found for the first time in orchard and row crop agroecosystems in Adams and Centre counties, Pennsylvania, during 2011. In Adams County, S. palealis male and female adults were net collected from flowers and found in white pan traps used to sample bee populations near apple orchards, while in Centre County adults were found in wire-cone traps baited with the sex pheromone of the European corn borer (E-strain), Ostrinia nubilalis (Hübner) (Lepidoptera: Crambidae). Additional records of S. palealis from four Ohio counties (Marion, Wayne, Franklin, and Delaware) are given. A brief discussion on the current economic importance of S. palealis in the United States is provided, and its importance as a non-target in European corn borer surveys is highlighted.
