    The winter moth, Operophtera brumata, a leaf-feeding geometrid native to Europe, has recently invaded eastern New England and is causing widespread defoliation. Previous invasions by this species in Nova Scotia and British Columbia have been suppressed by the introduction of two parasitoids from Europe, the tachinid Cyzenis albicans and the ichneumonid, Agrypon flaveolatum.
