on these Plants:


Luzula spp.
(Wood Rush) [Juncaceae]
(Observations are from Blackman & Eastop, Spencer & Steyskal, Braun)

Agromyzidae: Chromatomyia mitchelli [probable host plants; found in North Carolina] SS1986

Lepidoptera (Butterflies, Skippers, & Moths)
Coleophoridae: Coleophora biforis [larvae feed on seeds; Braun identified the host plant as Luzula campestris, which does not occur near Cincinnati, Ohio; however, because Luzula echinata was regarded as a variety of Luzula campestris, it is probably the host plant to which she was referring] Br1921
