host plants

Fabaceae, monophagous

Lotus corniculatus, parviflorus, pedunculatus, tenuis.

synonyms

Cecidomyia, Perrisia, loticola; Dasineura, Perrisia, loti Kieffer, 1909.

notes

See also the similar Contarinia barbichei. The latter species has shining, white or yellow larve that are able jump. Because generally younger larvae still are colourless, the difference in jumping ability is the only practical distinction in the field. In the experience of Sébastien Carbonelle in SW Belgium J. loticola is a common species.
