mandibles and detail of the spinulation


Agromyza idaeiana mandibles

comparison of the mandibles of A. idaeiana (A) with those of spiraeoidearum (B, C); from Hering (1954a).

The larvae are described by Hering (1954a); mandibles with 2, non=alternating, teeth; front spiraculum with 9, rear spiraculum with 3 papillae. See also Beri (1971c).

According to Hering (1954a, 1955d), de Meijere’s (1925a) description of “Agromyza spiraeae” is a mix of idaeiana and spiraeoidearum.
