group includes some of the largest of 1,600 micro-moths found in the UK.
In contrast to these results, poor effects were noted for the pyralid
Despite ample evidence that these deadly herbicides are damaging fields and gardens--and despite our calls for the companies and the Environmental Protection Agency (EPA) to solve this problem--we learned another dangerous pyralid
herbicide, aminocyclopyrachlor, had been widely sold in the spring of 2011 following its approval by the EPA in August 2010.
The most consumed larval insects were catepillars of a pyralid
moth that inhabits Ashe juniper trees.

He found that senitas were pollinated not by hawk moths, as most biologists believed, but by a small pyralid
Sawflies and pyralid
moths have shown promise, but the focus has been on an Australian moth (cataclysta camptozonale) that could be used in Florida once scientists determine whether it can control lygodium without harming native plants.
The insects that find abundant food in the dry season include many solitary and social bees, some species of tiger beetle (cicindellids), ant lions (myrmeliontids), the caterpillars of the seed-boring pyralid
moths and weevil larvae.
Leaf quality and enemy avoidance by the larvae of a pyralid
Cases of habitat fidelity rather than host fidelity have also been described for donaciine leaf beetles, pyralid
moths, and various weevils (reviewed in Mitter and Farrell 1991).
The mint root borer's attractant contains an unusual blend of four chemicals, one of which had never been detected before in Pyralid

Eiphosoma species are recorded as attacking a range of pyralid
