Caterpillar food: leaves of Monarda
6/22/2019 Leaf mines on Monarda in a planted prairie – upper side of leaf.
6/22/2019 Underside of the leaf
6/22/2019 Case – This looks like the same kind of case the larva makes as protection while it feeds on the leaves. But I wonder if this one is where it’s pupating, since it’s on the stem of the plant, not on a leaf or associated with a mine.
