leafminers, galls and fungi

Phytomyza soenderupi

Phytomyza soenderupi Hering, 1941

Essentially a borer in the petiole or flower stalk, but now and then the larva may make also corridors in the leaf blade. Pupation in the petiole.

host plants

Ranunculaceae, monophagous

Caltha palustris

phenology

Larvae in June and August (Hering, 1957a).

BENELUX

BE recorded (Scheirs, De Bruyn & von Tschirnhaus, 1999a).

NE not recorded (Fauna Europaea, 2008).

LUX not recorded (Fauna Europaea, 2008).

distribution within Europe

Britain, Denmark, Germany, Lithuania (Fauna Europaea, 2008); also Norway (Andersen & Jonassen, 1994a) and Switzerland (Černý & Merz, 2007a).

puparium

de Meijere (1943a).

parasitoids, predators

Cyrtogaster vulgaris.

Leaf mines are formed mostly in plants in relatively dry situations; here the petiole tends to be shorter.
