Fenusella hortulana (Klug, 1818)
< back
larva in mine


Food Plant: Populus nigra (Black Poplar), P.alba (White Poplar)

Mine: May

Notes: Forms a blotch mine on the leaf edge. The larva can be seen in the mine. Care must be taken in identifying this miner as the mines of Fenusella glaucopis can appear similar. Identification is on larval characteristics, in particular the sclerotization of the anal ring. Mine shown is on P.nigra italica.

Data: 19.v.2010, Liège, Sclessin, Belgium
