01/29/17 Collected some plants of water-speedwell, Veronica sp., bearing leaf mines in a second attempt to rear this midge

after the first attempt produced only females.

Indoor batch rearing (aquatic; affected plants and their leaves are submerged)

02/12/18 Pupae found in their leaf mines

and at least one pupa found in a Veronica stem (this series); examination of affected plants in the batch reveals that these larvae have been mining not only the leaves but also the stems.
