Meet the Pine False Webworm
Pine False Webworm (Acantholyda erythrocephala) is a pamphiliid sawfly of European origin that is now present in several parts of Eastern North America. The larvae have yellowish coloured heads with small brown spots and greenish-gray bodies. The larvae feed primarily on old foliage, however, when old foliage on a tree has been consumed, they will feed on the current year's needles, ultimately causing sever defoliation.
