detail

Ectoedemia rubivora: young mines on Rubus sp.

Rubus spec, Schiermonnikoog: leaf with several young mines © Dik Vonk

mine

Egg at the underside of the leaf. The mine is a highly contorted gallery, strongly widening towards the end. Frass in the second half of the gallery dispersed. The larve mines venter upwards. Mostly several mines in a leaf.

host plants

Rosaceae, monophagous

Rubus arcticus, caesius, chamaemorus, fruticosus, saxatilis.

Apparently not on R. idaeus (Johansson ao, 1990a) (but see Maček, 1999a)

At several sites in the Netherlands where E. rubivora was common, vacated mines have been found on Agrimonia eupatoria that strongly resembled those of E. rubivora; they certainly did not belong to E. agrimoniae, a species that does not occur in the Netherlands (van Nieukerken ea, 2010a).

phenology

Larvae in late September and October.
