Abstract

The Olive-shaded bird-dropping moth (Tarachidia candefacta, Noctuidae) was introduced from Canada and the U.S.A. into southern Russia in 1966 to control an invasive North American weed, Ambrosia artemisiifolia (Asteraceae). Tarachidia candefacta has become an invasive species in this region.
