Agromyza luteitarsis (Rondani, 1875)

mine

Blotch, near the leaf tip, containing one or two larvae; pupation outside the mine.

hostplants

Poaceae, narrowly oligophagous

Hordeum vulgare; Secale cereale; Triticum aestivum.

BENELUX

Not known from the Benelux countries (Fauna Europaea, 2008).

distribution within Europe

From Sweden and Finland tot the Iberian Peninsula and from the UK to the Baltic States and Serbia (Fauna Europaea, 2007).

larva

Described by Darvas, Skuhravá & Andersen (2000a): mandible with 2 teeth; front spiraculum with 8, rear spiraculum with 3 papillae. The papillae of the rear spiraculum are elongated and S-shaped, like in cinerascens and intermittens (d’Aguilar, Chambon & Touber, 1976a).

puparium

Anterior segments black, posterior ones brown (d’Aguilar, Chambon & Touber, 1976a).

synonyms

Agromyza articulata (Rondani, 1875).

notes

Hering (1957a) never mentions this species. Closely related with A. intermittens, and possibly the two are synomymous (Dempewolf, 2004a); in that case luteitarsis would be the valid name. Sometimes a pest on cereals.
