Pegomya dulcamarae Wood, 1913
Solanum dulcamara, ‘s Hertogenbosch, de Moerputten © Wouter Bosgra (identification confirmed by breeding by Joke Erkelens)
Said by Robbins to be similar to the mine of Pegomya hyoscyami, but to differ in the presence of an unusually large puparium. Probably a better discrimination is the unusually large clutch size, which on averge is 11 (Godfray, 1986a).
Solanaceae, narrowly monophagous
In Japan also on S. tuberosum (Suwa, 1975a).
BE not recorded (Fauna Europaea, 2016)
NE recorded (Wouter Bosgra, 2012)
LUX not recorded (Fauna Europaea, 2016)
