tree pests - cameraria ohridella tree pests - horse chestnut leaf miner moth

Scientific name: Cameraria ohridella

Common name: Horse Chestnut Leaf Miner Moth


Horse chestnut leaf miner was first discovered in the UK in 2002 and is thought to originate from Greece. The larvae of the leaf miner moth burrow into the leaves leaving brown mine-like marks on the leaves of horse chestnut trees. In severe cases entire trees take the appearance of early autumn colour with all the leaves turning brown. Each leaf can host up to 600 individual mines. The leaves dry up, shrivel and turn brown dropping off in late summer, well before the natural autumn drop.

Hosts: Horse Chestnut Trees.
