Stigmella samiatella parasite

Stigmella samiatella (Zeller, 1839) chestnut pigmy on Castanea, Quercus Castanea sativa, Tilburg, de Kaaistoep, 19.ix.2020 © Paul van Wielink Castanea sativa, Bergen op Zoom, 31.vii.2012 (egg at the underside, exit slit at upper side of the leaf) Quercus robur, Naardensebos, 11.viii.2002 mine Oviposition mostly at the leaf underside, almost always…

Stigmella atricapitella parasite

Stigmella atricapitella (Haworth, 1828) black-headed pigmy mine Oviposition at under- or upperside, usually well away from the leaf margin. The mine is a short, rather broad and quite tortuous corridor. In the first half the frass forms a very narrow central line; in the second half the frass is dispersed…

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 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samiatella Castanea sativa, Malden; leg Henk ten Holt; pronotum with dorsal sclerite (also the head capsule is visible, withdrawn into the prothorax).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…

Stigmella eberhardi parasite

Stigmella eberhardi (Johansson. 1971) 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. host plants Fagaceae, monophagous Quercus ilex, petraea, pubescens, pyrenaica, robur, suber. Rare on the…
