Definition of Gypsy
Gypsy Gyp"sy, or Gipsy moth Gip"sy, moth .
A tussock moth (Ocneria dispar) native of the Old World, but
accidentally introduced into eastern Massachusetts about
1869, where its caterpillars have done great damage to fruit,
shade, and forest trees of many kinds. The male gypsy moth is
yellowish brown, the female white, and larger than the male.
In both sexes the wings are marked by dark lines and a dark
lunule. The caterpillars, when full-grown, have a grayish
mottled appearance, with blue tubercles on the anterior and
red tubercles on the posterior part of the body, all giving
rise to long yellow and black hairs. They usually pupate in
July and the moth appears in August. The eggs are laid on
tree trunks, rocks, etc., and hatch in the spring.
