Arabis glabra is treated as Turritis glabra (Tower Mustard) by Stace (2010). The BSBI provide a downloadable plant crib for Brassicaceae.

No miners are recorded on Turritis in Britain.

Elsewhere three miners, Ceutorhynchus minutus, Liriomyza bryoniae and Scaptomyza flava, are recorded on this host plant.


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