Thread subject: :: Pupa of Agromyzidae?

Posted by Rai Hannover on 04-10-2014 13:13

In september 2014 I found for the first time mining flies on Phyllostachys parvifolia and Phyllostachys atrovaginata in my garden near Hannover. I obtained a fly from a pupa and checked some outside characters according to the publication of Luciano Süss, but I didn’t extract the male genitalia. The examination results are matching hundred percent Cerodontha unisetiorbita. Because of the orbital setulae and the venation oft he wings I can definitely exclude Cerodontha bisetiorbita.
