Hi Griff,

Thank-you for the id. After a little online reading, it turns out they do cause several problems, so I guess I'll hold my breath the next time I find one in the garden.

I'm in SE Michigan and luckily he was the only one I found, so I don't think there's an infestation (yet). I do wonder if it wasn't responsible for the hole/tear in the petal above it in the photo.

BTW the fall isn't torn in the first photo, it was very recurved for what I expected from an MDB.
