Date and time, location shooting/catching: 2018-05-20 00:00:00, TURKEYPhotographer's comment: Erschoviella musculana Erschoff 1874, A New Record And A New Walnut Pest In Turkey 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. http://dergipark.gov.tr/barofd/issue/36468/416647
