moonflower disease/pest, can you id?

Need2SeeGreen(10 (SoCal))November 5, 2013

Sorry, I don't have a picture yet.

My moonflower buds and many leaves are being warped by something, and I can't tell what it is. I don't see any bugs.

The buds bend to the side, and I'm not sure they are opening correctly either (there haven't been many as I got a late start this year, and I just haven't been around at the right time yet). They may just be ripening and then not opening.

It is probably some tiny little insect sucking on the leaves and buds, but how do I know what they are?

Your help is appreciated! I tried to do a search but I don't really know what I'm looking for.

Thank you for reporting this comment. Undo

Could they perhaps be spider mites? Do the leaves seem spotted? Check underneath your leaves to see if there are any tiny bugs sucking the chlorophyll.
