Calosirus terminatus (Herbst, 1795)

on Apiaceae


The larvae tunnel in the petioles and stems, sometimes also in the root crown. Occasionally this seems to result in a gall. Pupation in the soil.

Robbins writes that sometimes the larva makes a full depth mine in a lower leaf, starting from the petiole; Hering denies this.

The association with Fumaria by Dauphin & Aniotsbehere is erroneous. That the species is associated by Colonnelli ao with “several Lamiaceae” perhaps suggests that the interpretation of this species is controversial.


Ceutorhynchus terminatus.
