The leaves of this species may be completely green, or they may be spotted. It was observed that the variegated leaf zones strongly resemble recent damages caused by mining larvae and therefore may mimic an attack by moth larvae. Moths mistake variegated leaves for already-infested ones and avoid laying eggs there.
