Abstract

Rearings from mines in leaves of the perennial terrestrial vine trailing arbutus, Epigaea repens L., in Maryland, Michigan, and New England yielded specimens of the genus Brachys Dejean. Species of this genus in the eastern United States are previously known only as miners in shrubs and trees. Our study describes Brachys howdeni Hespenheide, new species, as well as its mines and biology.
