MICROTHLASPI. [Brassicaceae]

Thlaspi perfoliatum is treated as Microthlaspi perfoliatum (Perfoliate Penny-cress) by Stace (2010). The BSBI provide a downloadable plant crib for Brassicaceae.

No miners are recorded on this host plant in Britain.

Elsewhere two miners, Ceutorhynchus minutus and Scaptomyza graminum, are recorded on this host plant.

A key to the European miners recorded on Thlaspi including Microthlaspi is provided in Bladmineerders van Europa.
