Can"ker*worm` (?), n.
(Zoöl.) The larva of two species of geometrid
moths which are very injurious to fruit and shade trees by
eating, and often entirely destroying, the foliage. Other similar
larvæ are also called cankerworms.
&fist; The autumnal species (Anisopteryx pometaria)
becomes adult late in autumn (after frosts) and in winter. The
spring species (A. vernata) remains in the ground through
the winter, and matures in early spring. Both have winged males
and wingless females. The larvæ are similar in appearance
and habits, and belong to the family of measuring worms or
spanworms. These larvæ hatch from the eggs when the leaves
begin to expand in spring.
