Phytomyza thysselini: mine on Selinum carvifolia

lighted from behind

mine

Upper-surface mine in the tip of a leaf segment. In principle a gallery, but quickly turning into a secondary blotch within the limited space of the leaf segment. The mine begins in the very tip of the segment, this initial section later becomes unrecognisable. Frass in fine granules. Pupatio0n outside the mine.

hostplants

Apiaceae, oligophagous

Peucedanum palustre; Selinum carvifolia.

phenology

Larvae in June-July and August-September (Hering, 1957a).

BENELUX

BE recorded (Jean-Yves Baugnée, 2016).

NE recorded (de Meijere, 1924a).

LUX not recorded (Fauna Europaea, 2008).

distribution within Europe

From Sweden to the Alps, and from Britain to the Baltic States and Hungary (Fauna Europaea, 2008).

larva

The larva is described by de Meijere (1926a). Rear spiraculum with about 22 papillae. However, in his description de Meijere has included material taken from plant species known now not to be within the host range of thysselini. His description must be used with caution therefore.
