Obliquebanded leafroller

Choristoneura rosaceana

Larvae of the obliquebanded leafroller are yellowish green caterpillars. When disturbed, they wiggle backwards and drop to the ground on a silken thread. Rolled leaves webbed together to form protective nests reveal the presence of leafroller larvae. Adult moths have dark brown bands running at oblique angles across their wings. Obliquebanded leafroller overwinters as larvae under the bud scales of twigs; there are two to three generations each year in the Central Valley.
