In the very informative excerpt from the Cornell Extension Bulletin 324 Mike
Lowe provided us is the following statement: 

<< In our studies, eggs have been found pasted to practically
 everything in the cages that had a roughened surface-twigs, dead leaves,
 rusty nails, cloth, bits of wood, and wire screen.  Only in one instance
 were any eggs laid on fresh green iris leaves.  >>

Now, for some time I have been trying to get an authoritative answer to
whether the borer lays eggs only on iris debris, or whether any debris will
do. I recently read something that indicated that they laid only on iris
matter. The Cornell finding sounds more plausible. 

My question is this: Has the Cornell finding been superceeded?

Thank you so much, Mike. That was a really good article.
