The early larval stages of C. eriosoma feed on the underside of the lower leaves, grazing clear membranous 'windows' in them by eating part of the epidermis and the underlying tissue through to the upper leaf surface. Later larval stages will cut large, ragged holes through leaves and in heavy infestations can completely defoliate plants and damage fruit.
