NatureServe Conservation Status

Rounded Global Status Rank: GU - Unrankable

Reasons: Except that this species is not yet extinct, but appears headed that way, little is known. This species might yet recover if genetically modified or otherwise or blight resistant American chestnuts or a sufficiently similar hybrid ever become common enough in North American forests.

Environmental Specificity: Narrow. Specialist or community with key requirements common.

Comments: Thought to be a specialist on American chestnut.

Coleophora leucochrysella

The Chestnut Casebearer Moth (Coleophora leucochrysella) was a species of moth in the Coleophoridae family. It was endemic to the United States, where it was found in Indiana, Pennsylvania and Virginia.[1]

Larval Case

It is thought the species went extinct when many host trees died due to an infection of the fungus Cryphonectria parasitica, which was accidentally introduced from Asia around 1900.

The wingspan was 14–15 mm.

The larvae fed on Castanea dentata. They created a case consisting of silk and leaf fragments. It had a length of about 10 mm.
