Cactoblastis ronnai is a species of snout moth in the genus Cactoblastis. It was described by Brèthes, in 1920, and is known from Brazil.[1]

Taxonomy[edit]

The species has been reared from a spineless cactus species. It is probably a synonym of Cactoblastis cactorum, but the type specimen is lost, so the identity is unclear.[2]
