Tanacetum vulgare, a new host plant of Coleophora albicans and C. argentula (Lepidoptera, Coleophoridae) from Rishiri Island, Hokkaido, Japan.

Rishiri Studies 2020 No. 39 pp. 71-73;


Larvae of two Coleophorid moths, Coleophora albicans (Zeller, 1849) and C. argentula (Stephens, 1834), were found on Tanacetum vulgare in the northern coastal grassland of Rishiri Island, Hokkaido, Japan. The former species fed on the leaves, and the latter fed on the seeds of this plant. T. vulgare is considered to be a new host plant of both species.
