Liriomyza latipalpis Hendel,1920

mine

Narrow corridor, spiralling around the leaves; often a part of the mine runs in the deeper parts. Frass in strings, but not in “the typical pattern” (von Tschirnhaus, 1981a). Pupation as a rule within the mine.

hostplants

Juncaginaceae, monophagous

Triglochin maritima

BENELUX

Not known from the Benelux countries (Fauna Europaea, 2008).

distribution within Europe

Sweden, Denmark, UK, Germany, Poland (Fauna Europaea, 2008).

notes

Until the study by von Tscrirnhaus (1981a) of the mining fauna of the German Wadden coast it was assumed that Triglochin maritimum and palustre were mined by just one Liriomyza species, viz., L. triglochinae (recently rebatised into L. angulicornis). Von Tschirnhaus found that on T. maritimum two Liriomyza’s co-occur, sometimes even in the same mine: L. angulicornis and L. latipalpis. Which of the two occurs on the inland T. palustre is not yet known.
