Comments. Mines formed by Calycomyza hyptisicola   are similar to those formed by C. hyptidis   . However, these species can be differentiated by the shape of the male genitalia. The shape of the aedeagus in C. hyptisicola   is similar to that of C. lantanae   and C. verbenae   . However, the shape of the distiphallus and the presence of the subquadrate sclerite allows for differentiating this species from the others.
