( Fig. 10GView FIGURE 10)

Material examined. Russia: SO, Sakhalin Island, Yuzhno-Sakhalinsk, Gagarin Park , 46.96N, 142.75E, 69 m alt., Acer pictum  , 11.VII.2017, 1 larva, NK624GoogleMaps  , MK 403704View Materials, deposited in  INRA.

Leaf mine. The mine and the leaf rolls are similar to those of C. acericola  and C. gloriosa  , however the mine of C. heringi  is smaller and the folded leaf margin stage is often missing (instead larvae make a cone from the leaf tip right after vacating mine) ( Fig. 10GView FIGURE 10).

Trophic specialization. Monophagous on Acer pictum  ( Sapindaceae  ) ( Kumata 1966).

Distribution. Russia: RFE—KK, PK ( Ermolaev 1977; Baryshnikova & Dubatolov, 2007; Baryshnikova 2008, 2016), SO (Sakhalin Island) (new record); Japan ( Kumata 1966).
