Acalyptris loranthella (Klimesch, 1937)
Loranthus europaeus, Czechia; from van Nieukerken (2007a)
In connection with the thickness of the leaf, the mine is superficial: egg, mine and exit at the same side, either upper-surface or lower-surface. The mine is a corridor, often somewhat contorted, especially near the start, where secondary blotches may be formed. Frass brownish, initially in a narrow broken line, more dispersed or weakly coiled later, when it occupies one half to one third of the width of the corridor.
Bivoltine, larvae in June and September – October.
