( Figs. 27 View FIGURE 22–29 , 130 View FIGURES 124–132 )

Material examined. MASSACHUSETTS: Berkshire Co., Alford , 12.vi.2015, em. 20.vi.2015, C.S. Eiseman, ex Carex leptonervia   bract, #CSE1632, CNC564669 View Materials (1♂)   ; Lenox, Mahanna Cobble , 23.vi.2016, em. 28.vi.2016, C.S. Eiseman, ex Carex gracillima   , #CSE2644, CNC634778 View Materials (1♂)   ; em. 30.vi –4.vii.2016, C.S. Eiseman, ex Carex hitchcockiana   , #CSE2678, CNC654235, CNC654236 (1♂ 1♀).

Tentatively identified material. OKLAHOMA: Payne Co., Marena , 28.v.2016, em. 8–13.vi.2016, M.W. Palmer, ex Carex festucacea   , #CSE2568, CNC634779 View Materials (1♀)   ; Mehan , 36.014339° N, 96.996744° W, 6.v.2016, em. 8.v.2016, M.W. Palmer, ex Carex festucacea   , #CSE2665, CNC634805 View Materials (1♀) GoogleMaps   .

Hosts. Cyperaceae   : Carex   * gracillima Schwein., C.   * hitchcockiana Dewey, C.   * leptonervia (Fernald) Fernald   ; numerous other Carex   spp. in Europe. Spencer & Steyskal (1986) listed this species as feeding on C. crus-corvi Shuttlw. ex Kunze, but this was apparently in error since they indicated elsewhere that reared specimens are unknown in North America.

Leaf mine. ( Fig. 130 View FIGURES 124–132 ) A long, whitish corridor, changing direction a few times, with frass in a single blackish lump toward the leaf apex.

Puparium. ( Fig. 27 View FIGURE 22–29 ) Yellowish or reddish to blackish-brown; formed within the mine ( Spencer & Steyskal 1986), glued to the floor toward the base of the leaf.

Distribution. USA: CA, *MA, MT; Spencer & Steyskal (1986) note that Frick’s (1959) records of IL, IN, MD and SD require verification; Europe.
