Stigmella roborella parasite

Stigmella roborella (Johansson, 1971) common oak pigmy Quercus robur, Vlaardingen mine Egg at he upper- or underside. The mine is a long, slender, not very contorted corridor. In the first part the frass lies in a very narrow line; later the frass may in rare cases lie more widely scattered,…

Stigmella samiatella parasite

…The mine is very variable, like the one of most other Stigmella‘s on Oak. Without larvae it is impossible to discriminate with certainty the mines of samiatella from those of roborella, ruficapitella and the much rarer atricapitella and svenssoni. Contrary to Borkowksi (1972b), Johansson ao (1990a) write that the egg…

Stigmella eberhardi parasite

Stigmella eberhardi (Johansson. 1971) Lepidoptera, Nepticulidae mine Egg usually at the upperside of the leaf. The mine is a slender corridor with a narrow frass line. The mine cannot be disinguished from the ones of roborella or atricapitella. hostplants Fagaceae, monophagous Quercus ilex, petraea, pubescens, pyrenaica, robur, suber. Rare on…

Stigmella samiatella larva parasite

Stigmella samiatella Castanea sativa, Malden; leg Henk ten Holt; pronotum with dorsal sclerite (also the head capsule is visible, withdrawn into the prothorax). left: detail of the spinulation; right: segment 10, dorsal (without a group of spinules in front of seta D). Larva pale yellow (Borkowski, 1972b). The morphology has…
