Epicephala vitisidaea

Epicephala vitisidaea is a moth of the Gracillariidae family. It is found in Fujian, China and on the Ryukyu Archipelago.

The larvae feed on the seeds of Breynia vitis-idaea. The adult is the pollinator of the host plant. Eggs are placed in the interspace between the tepal and ovary, so the ovipositor does not penetrate floral tissue.
