Leaf mine. ( Fig. 72View FIGURES 63–74) Eggs are inserted near the leaf margin, associated with a cluster of feeding punctures. The gregarious larvae initially mine along the margin toward the apex, then turn around and form a large, dirty whitish upper surface blotch with generally distributed, liquidy, greenish to brown frass. Concentric feeding lines are present in some mines. The mines on Glyceria striata  were on the lower leaf surface.

Puparium. Yellowish-brown to reddish-brown; formed outside the mine.

Distribution. USA: *MA, NC, TN.
