Phrissotrichum tubiferum (Gyllenhal, 1833)
one to three larvae develop in a flower; they feed on the developing seeds in the capsules. Here also the pupation in a soft brown cocoon. The capsules are not disfigured. The infection is recognisable because, after the flower is dropped, the dry stamens remain attached to the capsule (eventually also by the exit hole of the beetle).
Cistus albidus, monspeliensis, salviifolius.
