An aggressive, non-native haplotype distinct genetic lineage within a species of Phragmites australis from Europe is invading brackish and freshwater systems in the eastern United States, potentially displacing native haplotypes. Syrphidae were the most abundant predators, the most common of which were Episyphus balteatus see below and Metasyrphus corollae. The result of this is that initially each colony sits within a wax circle on the leaf see picture below.
