the larva develops in the flower bud, that remains closed; here also the pupation takes place. That the larva would develop in unfolding leaf buds, as is stated by Redfern & Shirley, seems less probable.

host plants

Rosaceae, oligophagous

Prunus padus.

Occasionally also Crataegus and Prunus domestica, spinosa.

synonyms

Anthonomus rosinae Gozis, 1882.
