Inquilines are caterpillar species that do not make leaf ties but occupy them on occasion, and shelter-avoiders are species that are never found inside shelters.

These non-lepidopteran species have been recorded inside leaf ties as well.

§These species were unique to the artificial tie treatments in both 1999 and 2000.
