Agromyza spiraeoidearum Hering, 1954

8342

Spiraea x vanhouttei, Nunspeet

mine

Upper-surface corridor, relatively short and broad, irregular in shape, strongly widened in the end. Frass in isolated, angular grains, gradually larger in size. Secondary feeding lines visible in fresh mines. Pupation outside the mine.

hostplants

Rosaceae, narrowly oligophagous

Aruncus dioicus; Spiraea x bumalda, chamaedryfolia, media, salicifolia, x vanhouttei.

van Frankenhuyzen & Houtman (1972a) mention also Astilbe. However, because this genus belongs to a widely different plant family (Saxifragaceae), this is an unlikely relation.

phenology

Larvae from June to August, sometimes as late as September (Hering, 1957a).

notes

Hering (in Spencer, 1968a) points out that A. spiraeoidearum lives only on Aruncus and Spiraea (Rosaceae, subfamily Amygdaloideae), while A. idaeiana, with strongly similar mines, lives on a range of genera in the Rosaceae subfamily Rosoideae.

References in the older literature (and also Frankenhuyzen Houtman & Kabos, 1982a) to A. spiraeae Kaltenbach on Spiraea apply to the present species.
