The Codling Moth (Carpocapsa pomonella) is attracting so much
attention at present that I hope I may be excused for making some
remarks upon the subject.
This insect belongs to that family of the Lepidoptera called Tortricidae
(in French, "Tordeuses"), on account of the general habit of
their larvae of "twisting" or rolling up the leaves of plants of
their abode, usually those leaves enclosing a young shoot or
bud. They then devour such leaves, shoots or buds, to the great
detriment of the plant attacked. A few take up their abode in the
interior or fruits, especially the apple, pear, and plum.
|Additional Information:||In 1843 the Horticultural and Botanical Society of Van Diemen's Land was founded and became the Royal Society of Van Diemen's Land for Horticulture, Botany, and the Advancement of Science in 1844. In 1855 its name changed to Royal Society of Tasmania for Horticulture, Botany, and the Advancement of Science. In 1911 the name was shortened to Royal Society of Tasmania.|
