mine

A compact secundary blotch, without islands of unmined green tissue. Mines usually dirty brown in colour, strikingly resembling a dead and rotting leaf segment. Both primary and secondary feedling lines apparent. Frass partly in long strings. Pupation takes place within the leaf, in a lower-surface pupal chamber, often somewhat removed from the mine itself.
