same mine, underside
Upper-surface blotch, often following the leaf margin for some length, finally strongly widened. The real start of the mine, however, is a long narrow epidermal corridor in the lower surface of the leaf, made by the first instar larva (Allen, 1956a). Pupation outside the mine, exit slit generally in the lower epidermis.
Only occasionally on Aegopodium.
Larvae in June and August (Hering, 1957a).
BE recorded (De Bruyn & von Tschirnhaus, 1991a).
NE recorded (Ellis, several localities).
LUX recorded (Ellis: Kautenbach, Hobscheid).
