Remarks
"This large tribe of 585 known species is exclusively plant-feeding. The distinguishing character is the makeup of the terminal papillae of the larvae: one pair is corniform and recurved and the remaining three pairs have short setae. Most Cecidomyiini have simple, untoothed tarsal claws and all are curved beyond midlength."(1)
