This website is designed to improve the ability of plant inspectors and diagnosticians to identify larval and adult Microlepidoptera that feed on Solanaceae. This tool includes both native species that have low economic importance and exotic species, established in the USA or not, that are quarantine significant. This tool focuses on taxa that occur in southeastern United States, primarily along the Gulf Coast from Florida to Texas. Although many of the species included in this tool are widely distributed, caution is needed if used to identify specimens outside this region. The tool includes an interactive identification key, images, fact sheets, and an illustrated glossary of terms.
