Hoplocampa fulvicornis  auct., nec Panzer

Additional description. Body length: 4.0–5.0mm. Clypeus broadly and shallowly emarginate. Thorax black, including pronotum and tegula. Pro- and mesofemur basally black or entirely pale. Apex of metatibia pale, to indistinctly fuscous. Metatarsus more or less fuscous. Female: antenna black, with flagellum indistinctly reddish ventro-apically. Lancet: Fig. 85View FIGURES 83–88. Male: scape and pedicel black, flagellum nearly completely red. Harpes from completely black, to ventrally and dorsoapically partly pale. Penis valve: Fig. 103View FIGURES 94–107.

Total number of specimens examined: 73.

Similar species. On external characters could be confused with fulvicornis  , cantoti  , or chrysorrhoea  : see key. Whereas the lancets of cantoti  ( Fig. 92View FIGURES 89–93) and chrysorrhoea  ( Fig. 90View FIGURES 89–93) have a very different total shape compared to minuta  ( Fig. 85View FIGURES 83–88), the lancet of minuta  does not appear to be reliably distinguishable from that of fulvicornis  ( Fig. 84View FIGURES 83–88). The penis valve of minuta  ( Fig. 103View FIGURES 94–107) is most similar to that of fulvicornis  ( Fig. 102View FIGURES 94–107), but in minuta  the distal filament is shorter than the maximum height of the valviceps, whereas in fulvicornis  it is much longer than the maximal height. Also, the valviceps is distally tapered in fulvicornis  , but not tapered in minuta  .

Life history. Host plants: Cultivated Prunus  spp., particularly P. domestica ( Pschorn-Walcher & Altenhofer 2000)  and P. salicina ( Roberti 1952)  , less often P. avium ( Velbinger 1947)  . In southern Europe P. armeniaca  is affected ( Fintzescov 1921, Perju et al. 1995). Records of H. minuta  on Pyrus  in Japan refer to H. pyricola Rohwer, 1924  ( Velbinger 1944). Biology: Sprengel (1930b), Miles et al. (1933), Ahlberg (1940), Roberti (1952), Bernard (1952).

Distribution. Southern, central and northern Europe, excluding the British Isles, and north to Denmark, Estonia ( Taeger et al. 2006) and Norway ( Jaastad et al. 2007); Caucasus, and Uzbekistan ( Zhelochovtsev & Zinovjev 1995).

Occurrence in Sweden: published records: Skåne ( Thomson 1871, Benander 1966), Blekinge, Halland, Småland, Östergötland ( Ahlberg 1940), Västergötland, Bohuslän, Närke, Södermanland, Uppland ( Lindblom 1936), Västmanland ( Ahlberg 1940), Värmland ( Lindblom 1936): Material examined: Skåne, Småland.
