There's something or someone skinning my morning glory leaves! I noticed it this morning. There are places on the leaves where they have been skinned. The culprit didn't go all the way through, but left a clear 'window' through the leaf. Anyone heard of this before? I'll try to post a pic...

OK - It's a small blackish worm that's the culprit. It seems to be actually burrowing in the layers of cellulose and eating the green, but leaving the 'skeleton' with a thin layer still intact. Any idea what this could be or how I can get rid of it???

Here's the worm - you can see it on the upper right side.

Here's the overall look of the damage...

Here's another flower box, with perhaps a different parasite?
