Agonopterix ferocella (Chrétien, 1910)
Young larvae make a full depth blotch in the apical part of the leaf. Older larvae live free at the underside of the leaf, causing window feeding. While feeding they leave the dense hair cover of the underside intact, and in doing so in fact live in a “pseudomine”, between the upper epidermis and the hair cover.
Larvae in June, July (Hering, 1957a).
