Extract

In 1999, the leaf roller Caloptilia fraxinella (Ely) (Lepidoptera: Gracillariidae) was noticed for the first time in the city of Edmonton, Alberta, Canada, on ornamental green ash (Fraxinus pennsylvanica Marsh. var. subintegerrima (Vahl) Fern.) and black ash (F. nigra Marsh.) (Oleaceae). It has since been found there on Manchurian ash (F. mandshurica Rupr.) and white ash (F. americana L.). Specimens were collected and reared, and vouchers have been deposited in the Canadian Forest Service Arthropod Collection in Edmonton and the Canadian National Collection of Insects (CNC) in Ottawa, Ontario.
