The green budworm, Hedya nubiferana (Haworth), was collected in Ohio for the first time in 1991- A total of five specimens was collected at three sites in Portage County, OH. The collection of the green budworm at these widespread localities in Portage County in such numbers indicates that this potential pest species is now well established in Ohio, at least in the northeastern part. The identification of this species was made by Dr. William E. Miller, Department of Entomology, University of Minnesota, St. Paul, MN. Further studies in unsprayed, abandoned orchards and arboretums are suggested to more accurately determine the geographical distribution of this new species in Ohio.
