Abstract Several continuous cell lines have been developed at the Forest Pest Management Institute (FPMI) from the tissues of major forest insect pests to facilitate the in vitro investigations of insect pathogens. These cell lines originated from the spruce budworm (Choristoneura fumiferana), the forest tent caterpillar (Malacosoma disstria), the red-headed pine sawfly (Neodiprion lecontei), and the white-marked tussock moth (Orgyia leucostigma). Isozyme analyses were performed to confirm the identity of the new cell lines. Results of these analyses are presented here.
