LarvaWood-sage, Teucrium scorodonia
late April to MayThe young larvae are to be found; they eat the young leaves at first, but after the first moult (about first week in May) they go down the stem until the get within about 1.5 inches from the bottom when they eat the stem just half-way through, causing the parts above to bend down and soon to become half-dead and very soft; on this part the larvae feed; the plants around soon over-top it and cover it, and hence one has to search carefully for the affected plants beneath the surrounding foliage. When fullfed the larva descends to below where it has bitten, and, on the sound stem there, attaches itself for pupation, head downwards. [Tutt]
