Selania leplastriana (Curtis, 1906)
Moricandia arvensis, Spain; from Hering (1936b)
Normally the larva bores in the stem and side shoots; the frass is elected through a hole in the stem (Bradley ao, 1979a). However, Hering (1936b, 1957a) found that in Moricandia a broad corridor is made alongside the midrib, that finally widens into a blotch. Pupation external.
Larvae from September till May (Bradley ao, 1979a).
