Photographer's comment: Erschoviella musculana Erschoff 1874, was recorded in Turkey as the first time the result of studies conducted in the Bartin province between 2015-2018. This species which is an important walnut pest in middle Asia but, the damage is not exactly known in our country. Because damage of E. musculana confused with Zeuzera pyrina in fresh shoots and Cydia pomonella in walnut green hull. This insect is a serious threat for the walnut shoots and for the fruit of walnut logs. We are aware of the fact that this insect exist in various countries. The reason why this insect hasnt been recognized is that the harm it makes to shoots has been confused by the harm made by Zeuzera Pyrina and the harm it makes to the fruit was confused by the harm Cydia Pomonella makes. The spread path of this insect is caused by the logs of walnut, the species doesnt get spread by neither the fruit nor the seedling.
