  • [Rosaceae:] Pyrus elaeagrifolia ? [= Pyrus elaeagnifolia ?] ( Ölbaumblättrige Birne ?)

Laštůvka & Laštůvka (2009) schreiben: "The larvae have been found in the leaves of Pyrus amygdaliformis Vill. in Croatia, and adults have been usually collected near Pyrus elaeagrifolia Pallas in Greece, other Pyrus species are also possible host plants. The indistinctly yellow larva forms a nar­row, later slightly dilating mine, with dropping accu­mulation in its first half (fig. 5). All other nepticulid species mining on Pyrus spp. show green larvae, or greenish white in Ectoedemia atricollis (Stainton, 1857) respectively."
