Two main routes of horizontal transmission have been identified for the microsporidium, Nosema lymantriae Weiser, a frequently occurring pathogen of Lymantria dispar in Europe. Spores are released from 1) feces of living, infectious larvae after a latent period of approximately 2 weeks; and 2) the cadaver after host death.
