Abstract

The grub, which did so much injury to the potato crops in
certain parts of this island last year, and which threatens
during the present season to commit still further devastation,
is the production of a small moth of the Tineidae family,
and appears to be identical with the insect which has of
late years been making such ravages amongst the tubers in
New Zealand. In fact, it is by no means improbable that
it was introduced into Tasmania in some infected importations
from that country.
