Our summer fundraiser has arrived, and we need your help!
We depend on donations to keep Butterflies and Moths of North America online and free. If everyone who uses this resource makes a donation, we could cover our ongoing costs, develop new features, upgrade the system, and maybe even remove those pesky ads. Please make a one-time or recurring donation to show your support for this valuable source of information. Thank you!
Observation notes: Reared from Ostrya virginiana. Larva made a lower surface tentiform blotch mine at the leaf margin that was preceded by a somewhat obliterated linear portion (last photo). Frass was clumped together near the center of the mine and was then used to cover the pupa in an ovoid ball. The mine was found on 7/15, and the adult emerged this morning 7/27.
