lightly opened flower bud
opened flower bud with larvae
Several orange larve in the slightly swollen, closed or half-opened flower bud.
Possibly also Stellaria holostea.
The species seems to be undescribed. Possibly it concerns the same species as mentioned from flower buds of Stellaria holostea in Roskam (2009). Mainly based on that possibility the illustrated larvae are provisionally placed in the genus Dasineura.
