Grape Cane Girdler
Riedl, H.; Taschenberg, E. F.
The grape cane girdler is one of two Ampeloglypter species which can attack new shoot growth in the spring. It has been reported from throughout the midwestern and eastern United States. Originally this species was described as feeding primarily on Virginia creeper, Parthenocissus quinquefolia (L.) Planch., but apparently has adapted quite well to cultivated grapes. Like the grape cane gallmaker, it has only one generation per year.
