  • Bug ID and Saying hello

    [IMG][/IMG]

    Hi everyone, i am new here. seems like a busy place which is cool.

    Can anyone identify this Bug that has eaten the growing tip of my young snap pea plant?
    it has set up home in there, it started making a kind of cocoon

    It's not a maggot and i don think its a caterpillar either?

    any help appreciated

    Could it be Pea Moth - larvae?

      Thats for replying!

      Thats was my first thought, but i was under the assumption they only eat mature peas in the pod?

      could it be a pea weevil larve? I have got a lot of notched nibbled leaves indicating that, but then i thought pea weevil larve lived underground.

      the jury is still out

        Could be a hoverfly larvae, in there eating whatever ate your pea leaf.
