Description: It is well known that shortleaf pine (Pinus echinata Mill.), loblolly pine (Pinus taeda L.), and Virginia pine (Pinus virginiana Mill.) sustain significantly more Nantucket pine tip moth (Rhyacionia frustrana Comst.) damage than do slash pine (Pinus elliotti var. elliotti Engelm.) and longleaf pine (Pinus palustris Mill.) (Berisford and Ross 1990, Wakeley 1928). Understanding the cause of this difference in susceptibility is important since tip moth can be a serious pest, especially in commercial pine plantations. This study provides further information about the inheritance of susceptibility to tip moth damage in southern pine trees.
