Anthriscus sylvestris, Nieuwendam
mandibles and frontal appendage; rear end
front and rear spiraculum, lateral
front and rear spiraculum, dorsal
The larva is described by Meijere (1926a, as anthrisci and as chaerophylli) and by Allen (1957b, as anthrisci, conopodii, tordylii). The larva bears on its “head” a finger-shaped frontal appendage. This organ is found in several agromyzid larvae; its function is not known. Front spiraculum bifid, with 10-12 papillae; rear spiraculum with 16-22 papillae in a rough ellipse.
Also Beri (1971e) presents a description of the larva; however, his material was taken from an “unidentified Compositae” making it obvvious that it was incorrectly identified.
