Both the larvae and the adults of the larkspur leaf-miner (Phytllmyro delphiniae Frost) injure the plant. The various stages of the insect are described and notes are given on its life history and habits. Two hymenopterous parasites have been reared from the pupae: Cyrtogaster liquealus Ashm. and a new species of Opius. Control measures are briefly discussed.
