# Cite in the caption of a graphic but not in \listoffigures?

Sometimes I'd like to cite the reference in the caption of a graphic. But I want to avoid that this citation is displayed in the \listoffigures. How can I achieve that?

Fore example with this code:

\begin{figure}[htb]
\centering
\includegraphics{overview_pyramid.png}
\caption{Overview pyramid \cite{LM2010}}\label{fg:overview_pyramid}
\end{figure}

Why not simply use

\caption[Overview pyramid]{Overview pyramid \cite{LM2010}}\label{fg:overview_pyramid}
