notes

In 2005 I mentioned in this place the find of this species in the Netherlands (Amsterdam). Since then I have growing doutbs about the identification. The single mine was not yet fully developed, and can just as well be the work of Trypeta zoe. At the present state of knowledge the larva does not enable to discriminate between the two.
