Cerodontha phragmitidis Nowakowski, 1967
Phragmites australis, Nieuwendam
puparium in the mine
Elongated blotch, usually in the distal part of the blade. The mine is mostly interparenchymatous, less frequently lower-surface, and rarely upper-surface. Rather little frass, in fairly large grains, scattered in the mine. Larva generally solitary. Pupation almost always within the mine..
A reference toCalamagrostis epigeios in de Meijere (1928a) must be a misunderstanding.
Larvae in June-September, less often also May and October (Nowakowski, 1973a).
BE recorded (Scheirs & De Bruyn, 1992a).
NE recorded (de Meijere (1924a,as C. atra).
LUX not recorded (Fauna Europaea, 2007).

Cerodontha atra: Hendel, Hering, de Meijere ao
Chrysocharis polyzo; Pnigalio pectinicornis, phragmitis.
Member of the subgenus Poemyza (Nowakowski, 1973a).
A few times I noted two minuscule perforations in the leaf epidermis where this was touched by the rear spiracula; how they were made is unclear.
