hostplants

Adoxaceae, monophagous

Sambucus.

notes

despite the confusing identity of the specific name, this is not a synonym of Epitrimerus trilobus, that often is cited as (the only) causer of leaf margin galls in elder. Whether both species co-occur in the same gall, perhaps the one as an inquiline of the other, is not clear.
