    The genus Lymantria includes a number of destructive forest pests such as the gypsy moth (L. dispar) and nun moth (L. monacha) in various regions across the northern hemisphere. A number of species have been transported beyond their native range, either intentionally or in conjunction with international trade. Egg masses of both L. mathura and L. dispar asiatica were recovered from vessels during quarantine inspections on the west coast of both Canada and the United States in the early 1990s.
