No, I left Florida in the Fall but I doubt I would have anyways. We don't have wild iguanas as far north as Crystal River.

Did you see frozen iguanas this winter?

Oh ok! I wasn't sure. Yes I have seen miner activity on our orange tree, but I am not sure if it is from this moth or some leaf miner flies, as I have seen both in my yard.

I guess I'm confused.. Liriomyza is a genus of flies. This is a moth. Did you send me the right link?
