Lymantria dispar

La cuca peluda del suro[1] (Lymantria dispar) és un lepidòpter d'Euràsia, tot i que a finals de la dècada de 1860 va ser introduïda a Amèrica del Nord. És una defoliadora molt efectiva que pot arribar a generar autèntiques plagues. Afecta la producció del suro i el creixement de l'arbre encara que no l'arriba a matar.
