Box tree moth - Cydalima perspectalis
Introduced in Europe and first recorded in Germany in 2006. Recently recorded in Bulgaria as well.
This is not my photo - one of my employees captured it with her smartphone on the wall of our factory in Sofia. She knows how much I am interested in anything alive and made this photo for me. Her name is on the photo.
There is a Wiki page for this species, but strange way, the JD record failed to create and I did it manually.
Cydalima perspectalis or the box tree moth is a species of moth of the family Crambidae. It is native to eastern Asia (Japan, China, Taiwan, Korea, the Russian Far East and India) and introduced in Europe.
They are found all over the country. There is nothing left of the big box trees in the sea garden in Varna. Posted 6 years ago
