Technical Abstract: The invasive Cydalima perspectalis (Walker, 1859) (Crambidae: Pyraloidea) or box tree moth was recently intercepted for the first time in the United States. It is of east Asian origin and its larvae can be a severe pest of Buxus spp. or boxwood. It has been expanding its distribution westward and was reported in Europe for the first time in 2006 and in Canada in 2018. Screening aids for the identification of larvae, pupae, and adults were created to assist in the identification of this new invasive species in the United States. The screening aids will be used by U.S. domestic identifiers and identifiers at U.S. ports.
