Damage to a Coast Live Oak (Quercus agrifolia) caused by the California Oak Moth (Phryganidia californica), the most important oak-feeding caterpillar throughout its range, which extends along the coast and through the coastal mountains of California. The caterpillars can strip a tree of all leaves but the Coast Live Oak trees usually recover in subsequent years.
