“Pseudorchestes heringi” Dieckmann

Coleoptera, Curculionidae

mine

Identical to the one of P. pratensis.

hostplants

Asteraceae, monophagous

Centaurea calcitrapa.

distribution within Europe

“South and West Europe”.

synonyms

Pseudorchestes heringi is not mentioned in the Fauna Europaea; almost certainly it is a synomym, most probably of P. pratensis, but I have not succeeded in finding a confirmation in the literature.

notes

The species is mentioned also by Maček (1999a) from Centaurea jacea. However, Hering explicitely states that the species were living on C. calcitrapa.
