Further tests showed that Bagous sp., a tuber feeder, was host-specific. Egg transfer tests on 14 plants with Bagous sp. nr. limosus, a stem feeder, showed that 4-26% of larvae developed to the adult stage in Potamogeton spp. as against 36-60% in H. verticillata. Hydrellia sp., a leaf miner, fed on ...
