Asphondylia bitensis Kieffer, 1888
One to three red larvae, or pupae, in the galled pods. Inner wall of gall chamber lined with mycelium.
Fabaceae, narrowly monophagous
Simova-Tošić, Skuhravá & Skuhravý (1996a) and Dauphin & Aniotsbehere (1997a) cite bitensis in synonymy of A. genistae, and that point of view is shared by Gagné (2010a) in his catalogue of the Cecidomyiidae. For that reason the species is not included in the Fauna Europaea (2014). However, without an explanation the species is reinstated in the newest edition of the catalogue by Gagné & Jaschhof (2014a).
