Status of Salbia haemorrhoidalis as a biocontrol agent for Lantana camara in Hawaii

Salbia haemorrhoidalis was originally released in Hawaii in 1956. This moth affects the flowers of lantana (Lantana camara) and is highly damaging to the plant. Effective control of lantana in Hawaii by the moth declined by 1969, possibly due to unfavorable weather conditions or parasitism. This species was difficult to rear in captivity.
