Winterberry leafminer parasitoid - Chorebus
Size: 1-1.5 mm
Found in a bag in which I had kept winterberry (Ilex verticillata) leaves over the winter. The leaves contain Rhopobota (Tortricidae) larvae/pupae, which I am trying to rear, as well as mines of a Phytomyza species--so the host could be either one of these. One of the flies has also emerged as of 4/28/10.
Please let me know if other views/details would help with ID.
