ABSTRACT
The article reports on the emergence of a new leafminer species and the reappearance of shuckworm pests in New Mexico. Entomologist Carol Sutherland identified the insect pests as the pecan serpentine leafminer, Stigmella juglandifoliella, and hickory shuckworm, Cydia caryana. Sutherland said that the pecan serpentine leafminer builds winding tunnels inside pecan leaflets which can result to tattered foliage when the mines dry and break apart in the wind.
