    Description

    Specimens of gypsy moth, Lymantria dispar (L.) sensu lato were displayed in museum trays. Many specimens were quarantine laboratory reared during the 1989 season to provide samples (wing venation, frozen adults, prepupal haemolymph, larval feeding behavior, egg mass hair color, head capsule coloration and larval development) for various studies. Material reared was from HOKkaido, HONshu, and KYUshu, JAPAN; BEIjing, CHINA; Sibenik, YUGOSLAVIA; Queen Annes, MARYLAND (QAMD); and our standard BIRL culture. All (except HON) were individually reared (60 specimens each) in the first rearing using prepared diet. Varying numbers of additional specimens were reared on diet or Betula leaves in multiple larval containers. All were examined daily.
