Coptotriche angusticollella (Duponchel, 1843)

rose carl

Coptotriche angusticollella mines

Rosa spec., Belgium, prov. Namur, Han-sur-Lesse, la grande Tinémont

mine

Whitish, upper-surface blotch, often occupying an entire leaflet. Fully developed mines strongly contract, and the leaflet doubles along the midrib. Almost all frass is ejected through a hole in the epidermis. Often several mines in a (composite) leaf. Pupation external.

hostplants

Rosaceae, monophagous

Rosa “x barboniana”, canina, centifolia, x damascena, gallica, pendulina, rubiginosa, sempervirens, tomentosa, virginiana.

phenology

Bivoltine. Larvae in June – July and again in late August – September (van Frankenhuyzen & Freriks, 1957a).

Hering (1957a) writes that the larva hibernates in the mine, and pupates only in spring. This is not unconditionally true: the pupa depicted here was found in mid-July in a fresh (not hibernated) leaf.
