Abstract

We discuss two insects feeding on foliage of sea lavender (Plumbaginaceae: Limonium carolinianum (Walt.) Britt.) in Maine and Massachusetts, USA. Staticobium Mordvilko (Hemiptera: Aphididae) is documented in North America for the first time. A revision of the genus is needed before these aphids can be placed to species. We report the rearing of Gynnidomorpha romonana (Kearfott) (Lepidoptera: Tortricidae) and a parasitoid (Braconidae: Microgastrinae) from larvae mining sea lavender leaves.
