Trachys subglaber Rey, 1891

Coleoptera, Buprestidae

mine

Probably indistinguishable from the mine of T. troglodytes.

hostplants

Caprifoliaceae, ? oligophagous

Knautia arvensis; Scabiosa atropurpurea, canescens, columbaria; Succisa pratensis.

Because of confusion with T. troglodytes the list of host plants is unreliable. According to Levey only Succisa comes into consideration.

BENELUX

Not known from the Benelux countries(Fauna Europaea, 2016).

distribution within Europe

From Germany till Spain (Fauna Europaea, 2016); also Great Britain (Levey).

synonyms

Trachys compressus Abeille de Perrin, 1891; Trachys troglodytes subglaber.

The Fauna Europaea considers subglaber a subapecies of troglodytes, but because in the UK, according to the experience of Levey, both species might co-occur this is improbable.
