< back
dorsal view
lateral view

 

Food Plant: Populus species eg P.tremula (Aspen), P.nigra (Black Poplar)

Mine: Bivoltine: early summer and early autumn

Pupa: Outside the mine

Notes: A long winding lower surface gallery. The mine of A.populi is similar, but the pupation is in the mine in this species. A.populi mines are partly, sometimes fully, upperside, whereas A.tremulae mines are lower surface. The larvae are pale yellow and have stalked anterior and posterior spiracles (as seen in the dorsal view (top photo) and lateral view (bottom photo))
