Phyllonorycter insignitella (Zeller, 1846)
Lower surface tentiform mine that occupies only part of a leaflet. In full grown leaves the mine is strongly inflated an is largely hidden by the leaf. Contrary to other species not the entire leaflet is mined out.
Records from Lathyrus are somewhat dubious (Hering, 1957a).
Larvae in July and September – October (Emmet ao, 1985a).
BE recorded (Phegea, 2009).
NE recorded (Huisman ao, 2004a; van Stiphout ao, 2004a; Microlepidoptera.nl, 2009).
LUX recorded (Fauna Europaea, 2009).
distribution within Europe
Europe, except the Balkan Peninsula (Fauna Europaea, 2009).
Described by Gregor & Patočka (2001a) and Patočka & Turčáni (2005); see also King & Murria (2002a). The pupa strongly resembles the one of Ph. medicaginella, but the 10th abdomen segment is clearly wider than long (as wide as long in medicaginella) and the cremaster spines are not notched just before the hooks. The constancy of these differences remains to be established.
