2.1. Nahrung der Raupe

Strenggenommen noch unbekannt. Koster et al. (2020) haben aber einen sehr konkreten und gut begründeten Verdacht: "The specimens from Inagua on Gran Canaria were collected at light by Jari Junnilainen on the road side of GC-200. The light source was positioned near a spot where Asteriscus graveolens subsp. stenophyllus (Link) Greuter (Asteraceae) (Figs 15, 16) was dominant (previously known as Nauplius stenophyllus). The genus Asteriscus has a number of species occurring on the Canary Islands, partly endemic, partly also occurring on the African mainland (Goertzen et al. 2002). They occur on all islands where Alloclita canariensis was found (Hohenester and Welß 1993; Bramwell and Bramwell 2001). The fact that Asteriscus is related to Pulicaria and the abundant occurrence on the Gran Canaria locality make Asteriscus a likely candidate hostplant."
