Extract

On 20 September 1980 a single male gypsy moth, Lymantria (= Porthetria) dispar (L.), was found in a pheromone trap near the Arts and Culture Centre, Corner Brook, Newfoundland. Identification was confirmed by Dr. J. D. Lafontaine, Biosystematics Research Institute, Ottawa. This was the first record of the gypsy moth in Newfoundland, which is separated in the south 144 km from Nova Scotia and in the north 14 km from Labrador.
