The tomato moth, Tuta absoluta (Meyrick) (Lepidoptera: Gelechiidae), is a devastating pest of cultivated tomato ( Lycopersicum esculentum Mill.), originating from South America (EPPO 2005). The first occurrence of T. absoluta in Croatia was in December 2009 (Gotlin Čuljak et al. 2010) when lepidopteran larvae were found on a tomato crop in a greenhouse located at Turanj (43°58'N 15°25'E).
