Abstract
This paper presents the results of some observations made over a period of 3 years, from 1977 to 1979, on the biology and behaviour of the bramble shoot-webber, Notocelia uddmanniana (L.) (Lepidoptera, Tortricidae), in 3 localities of the Tuscan Apennines and one of the Monte Pisano, all situated between an altitude of 800 and 1000 m. This species is widely dstributed in Europe, Asia Minor and North Africa and feeds on plants within the Genus Rubus. Notocelia uddmanniana shows one generation per year; adults appear in late June and eggs begin to hatch at the end of July. The larvae feed on the leaves of young shoots until, on the third instar, in late August, they spin silk webs on the canes of the host plant where they spend the autumn and winter. The following April, they resume feeding and in late May or early June they reach maturity, when, by webbing together the leaves on which they had fed, they pupate. The bramble shoot-webber can cause serious damage when it infests cultivated varieties of Rubus. During the research, some specimen of Exeristes (Pimpla) roborator (F.) and Itoplectis (Pimpla) maculator (F.) (Hymenoptera, Ichneumonidae), were recorded for the first time as Notocelia uddmanniana parasites.
