    Description

    The introduced pine sawfly, Diprion similis (Hartig), was reported in North Carolina for the first time in 1978. The initial finding was of the cocoon stage in the autumn of 1977 at Linville Falls. It is a European species that defoliates eastern white pine in this country and is capable of damaging hard pines. A brief account of its description, hosts, life history, survey, and control is included.
