Caption: European grapevine moth (Lobesia botrana) cocoon. This teased-open cocoon on the underside of grape vine bark reveals the pupa. This is how this moth overwinters. The larvae of this moth feed on the fruit and flowers of grape vines, and it is a major vineyard pest. It is native to Europe and northern Africa, but was first found in the USA in California in 2009, leading to quarantines being imposed to try and contain its spread.
