Abstract: PURPOSE: The objective of these studies was to determine if leaf-mining flies in the genus Hydrellia (H. pakistanae Deonier and H. balciunasi Bock) introduced as biological control agents would impact the fluridone-resistant biotype of Hydrilla verticillata (L.f.) Royle (hydrilla). This was accomplished using a combination of small-scale container bioassays and by examining establishment and impact at field locations
