Se identifico en un tamizado genetico de factores involucrados en el rango de hospederos del LdNPV (Thiem et al., 1996) y solo se ha identificado un homologo, que se encuentra en el baculovirus de Orgyia
pseudotsugata (Lepidoptera: Lymantriidae) Op-NPV que tambien se replica en la linea celular de L.
The peritrophic membrane: ultrastructural analysis and function as a mechanical barrier to microbial infection in Orgyia
The description of the caterpillars was consistent with the white-marked tussock moth caterpillar (Orgyia
leucostigma) (Figure), which ranges through much of the eastern United States and as far west as Texas and Colorado.
Resumen: Para proveer guias acerca de la utilizacion y conservacion de los parasitoides del defoliador forestal Orgyia
ericae se inventariaron sus especies de parasitoides.
Most dendroentomological research has focused on the loss of photosynthetic tissue (i.e., buds and leaves) and tree growth caused by defoliating insects such as western spruce budworm (Choristoneura occidentalis) (Swetnam et al., 1985; Swetnam and Lynch, 1993; Ryerson et al., 2003), tussock moth (Orgyia
sp.) (Mason et al., 1997) and pandora moth (Coloradia pandora) (Speer et al., 2001; Pohl et al., 2006).
Predation on larvae of Douglas-fir tussock moth, Orgyia
pseudotsugata (Lepidoptera: Lymantriidae), by Metaphidippus aeneolus (Araneae: Saliticidae).
No evidence for costs of being large in females of Orgyia
In the 1970s an outbreak of the Douglas fir tussock moth (Orgyia
pseudotsugata) ravaged hundreds of thousands of acres throughout Oregon, Washington, and Idaho.
Resources and dispersal as factors limiting a populations of the tussock moth (Orgyia
vetusta), a flightless defoliator.
The large white cabbage butterfly (Pieris brassicae) or the small white butterfly (Pieris rapae The Vapourer Moth Orgyia
antiqua, whose caterpillars eat leaves of dahlias, don't mind other 'snacks' either.
Predation of small and large Orgyia
The same association is the focus of Harrison's (1997) study of the western tussock moth (Orgyia
retusta), and of the study by Rhainds et al.
