Comments. The terminalia of Calycomyza ipomaeae   are similar to those of C. irreperta Spencer   , which is differentiated primarily by the shape of the distiphallus tubules and by the coloration of the fronto-orbital plate. Calycomyza ipomaeae   larvae form irregular   blotches, usually on the surface of the leaf. This species has previously been reported forming mines on several Ipomoea   L. species.
