mine

Large, conspicuous, upper-surface, whitish blotch, preceded by a short, in the end generally overrun, corridor. Most frass in fine grains; part of it lies in a broad band in the mine, that ends near the point where the larva has left the mine for pupation. Exit slit in upper epidermis. Frequently several larvae in a common mine.

notes

Also Beri (1971d) describes a larva; however, the larva is from Origanum vulgare, and his identification therefore in all probability incorrect.
