Scrobipalpa pauperella (von Heinemann, 1870)

cambridge groundling

mine

Not well known. The mine on Cirsium would resemble the one of S. acuminatella, but in Centaurea the larve perhaps is a stem borer (Bland ao, 2002a).

hostplants

Asteraceae, oligophagous

Centaurea phrygia, scabiosa; Cirsium acaule, arvense, canum, palustre, vulgare; Jurinea cyanoides; Petasites albus; Serratula tinctoria (?).

According to Huemer & Karsholt (2010a) only the references to Centaurea are really trustworthy.

phenology

Larvae in July, probably also in September (Sattler, 1989a).

BENELUX

Not known from the Benelux countries (Fauna Europaea, 2009).

distribution within Europe

Almost all of Europe, but not known from Ireland, the Iberian and the Balkan Peninsula (Fauna Europaea, 2009).
