Are the genera ending in -myza, like Anthomyza and Phytomyza, based on Greek μυῖα (myia, fly), μυζάω (myzao, suck), or something else?

It seems to be 'to suck':

-myza or -myzon n combining form [NL, fr. Gk myzein, myzan to suck; akin to Gk mydan to be damp] : one that sucks or feeds by suction ― in generic names in zoology <Petromyzon> <Agromyza>
