Phytomyza lycopi Nowakowski, 1959
Lycopus europaeus, Susteren
The mine begins as a tiny narrow spiral (later recognisable only as a small dark spot). Then follows a corridor that is wound strongly, intestine-like, easily ending up in secondary blotch. Mine usually in the leaf tip. Pupation generally within the mine; the spiracula of the puparium dn not penetrate the epidermis.
Lycopus europaeus, exaltatus.
Puparia found end May and early November.
BE recorded (Daan Dekeukeleire in litt., 2014).
NE recorded (Ellis: Susteren, Griendtveen).
LUX not recorded (Fauna Europaea, 2008).
distribution within Europe
From Denmark and Lithuania to Albania and Bulgaria (Fauna Europaea, 2008). Possibly als the “Agromyza sp., brown blotch” recorded by Skala (1941a) belongs to this species.
Phytomyza obscura: Hering, 1957.
Contrary to Nowakowski, the secondary feeding lines were well visible in the Dutch material.
