Stenodiplosis phragmicola Sinclair & Ahee, 2013
Phragmites australis, France, dép. Nord, Zuydcote © Sébastien Carbonelle
Larva solitary, develops in a floret, destroying the ovary; pupation in the floret, not in a cocoon.
the species is described from North America, where reed is an invasive species; it may be assumed the the species occurs in Europe as well, where reed is indigenous. This was the base of the identification of the material iilustrated above.
