larva, dissected out
Brownish lower surface blotch. The leaves finally are completely eaten out and turn whitish. Pupation within the mine; the puparium mostly is located in the leaf tip.
Sedum album, rupestre.
Records from Sedum acre, by Hering (1957a) and others almost certainly are incorrect (Griffiths, 1976a).
Larvae in June and August (Hering, 1957a); however, the pictures above were made in April.
Not known from the Benelux countries (Fauna Europaea, 2008), but see the pictures above.
distribution within Europe
From Germany to Spain, and in Serbia (Fauna Europaea, 2008); also Switzerland (Černý & Merz, 2007a) and Britain (Gibbs, 2007a).
The larva is described by Griffiths (1976a), who points out that the earlier description by Hering (1954a) is erroneous.
