The replication of a nuclear polyhedrosis virus (NPV) of _Lambdina fiscellaria somniaria) in the cultures of M. disstria hemocytes has been described early (Sohi and Cunningham, 1972). It was of further itnerest to see if the NPV of Choristoneura fumiferana would also grow in these cells. The results of this work are presented here.
