Abstract

Taphrocerus gracilis (Say) was observed mining the leaves of Rhynchospora corniculata (Lam.) A. Gray (new larval host record) at several locations in southeast Missouri. Two generations per year were observed, and no other plant species were observed being utilized as larval hosts. The beetle is also reported from R. corniculata in Mississippi.
