Loxostege sticticalis Linnaeus, 1761 

Distribution

Holoarctic species ( Fabiano 2017).

Notes

It is a migratory pest that causes serious economic damage every year. Seems to be polyphagous in its larval stage, but it has been reported to have obvious hostplant selection for many crops (sugar beet, potato and soybean) and pastures ( Wei et al. 2017).
