Liriomyza heringi Nowakowski, 1961
Blotch, frass in black grains. Pupation outside the mine.
Euphorbia esula, nicaeensis, palustris, salicifolia.
Possibly found also on E. amygaloides.
Larvae found in early October (Romania).
Not known from the Benelux countries (Fauna Europaea, 2009).
distribution within Europe
Lithuania, Romania (Fauna Europaea, 2009).
Described and illustrated by Nowakowski (196a). Mandibles two-teethed, alternating; front spiraculum indistinctly bifid with 7-9 papillae, rear spiraculum with 9 papillae in an incomplete oval.
Yellow, shining, almost smooth, 1.8mm.
The type material was collected in Romania in 1930 by Hering, and identified then als L. pascuum. After the description of the larvae and what is known of the mine of heringi the two species are indistinguishable. The mines of pascuum as a rule are communal; nothing is sid about this for heringi – perhaps this may give a hint.
