E. A. Heinrichs. 1968. The pecan casebearer, Acrobasis caaryae (Lepidoptera: Pyralidae) on mockernut hickory, Carya tomentosa. Journal of the Kansas Entomological Society 41 (2): 236-239.
The presence of an A. caryae (Grote) larva in the terminal portion petiole apparently prevents the three terminal leaflets from developing normally. Larvae were present in the petioles from early spring until May 29. Four hymenopterous parasites were reared.
