  • Henry Murillo (a1), David W.A. Hunt (a2) and Sherah L. VanLaerhoven (a1)
Abstract

Specimens of Chrysodeixis chalcites (Esper) (Lepidoptera: Noctuidae) have been found in different municipalities in southwestern Ontario, Canada since 2008. This nonnative species occurs in tomato and green bean crops where it has the potential of becoming an important insect pest.
