Abstract
Phytometra orichalcea is sometimes known as the hurnished-brass moth because of the characteristic metallic yellow patches on the fore-wings of the adult. The larvae are polyphagous and attack many crops in Southern and Eastern Africa, Madagascar, Ceylon and India. The moth is also common in parts of the Mediterranean area (Kozlowski and Rungs, 1932; Yathom and Rivnay, 1968).
