Plant Parasites of Europe

leafminers, galls and fungi



The larvae of most species are phytophagous, living on grasses. They bore in the culm and can destroy the growing tip or live in the protection of the leaf sheaths. They may induce gall formation. Oscinella frit is sometimes a pest in cereal crops.
