No Common Name Marmara viburnella Eiseman & Davis, 2017  

Status:

The tale of the discovery of this recently-described (2017) species is here in Charley Eiseman's blog BugTracks.

Relationships:

"Eggs are deposited singly on Viburnum leaves in early summer. The larva initially mines the leaf, then proceeds down the petiole and into the stem, where it completes development as a bark miner. In late spring, it cuts out a flap of bark at the end of its mine and spins its cocoon beneath this" (Charley Eiseman/BugGuide, 2017).

There are 4 records in the project database.
