The cypress bark moth is frequently found infesting cones and trunks of Monterey Cypress in central coastal California. Larval feeding on cones produces unsightly accumulations of frass, while trunk feeding results in the production of swellings and resin flow. Primary concern about the moth may lie in its relationship with a serious fungus disease on the cypress, according to these studies.
