Does anyone know the larval food plant(s) of Hyppa xylinoides?  The 2nd.
gen. is flying now in Atlantic Canada and I have a female that is laying
eggs. Presumably these will produce pupae this Fall. There hardly seems to
be enough time for this process. The 1st gen flies in eary Summer so I
can't see how this species can overwinter as anything but a pupa; perhaps
as a late-instar larva?
