Cochylis epilinana Duponchel, 1842
Larvae bore in the green fruits.
Linum campanulatum, catharticum, narbonense, usitatissimum.
Klimesch writes that the moth has been bred from the fruits of Asphodelus “microcarpus”; this cannot possibly the same species. Also the attributions of Solidago and Cephalaria leucantha by Kovács & Kovács are difficult to understand. See also the discussion in Lepiforum.
