Calycomyza enceliae Spencer 

( Figs. 8, 9View FIGURES 6–13, 38View FIGURES 34–45)

Material examined. ARIZONA: Pima Co., Coronado National Forest, Redington Rd. , 4.iii.2017, em. 24.iii.2017, C.S. Eiseman, ex Encelia farinosa  , #CSE3291, CNC940432–940434View Materials (1³ 2♀)  .

Hosts. Asteraceae  : Encelia californica Nutt.  (adults common on this host but no mines found (Spencer 1981; Spencer & Steyskal 1986)), E. farinosa A. Gray ex Torr.  , Helianthus annuus  L. ( Gates et al. 2002).

Leaf mine. ( Fig. 38View FIGURES 34–45) The mines from which we reared this species on Encelia farinosa  were pale green without evident frass; vacated mines became brownish with a narrow whitish margin. They were initially linear, gradually widening to a blotch that later partly or mostly obliterated the linear portion. The larva exited through a crescentshaped slit in the upper epidermis. Gates et al. (2002) classified the mine on E. farinosa  as “upper surface serpentine/blotch,” in agreement with our observations, but characterized the mine on Helianthus annuus  as “upper surface serpentine.”

Puparium. ( Fig. 9View FIGURES 6–13) Brown; formed outside the mine.
