mine

Oviposition on the underside of the leaf, rarely on the petiole (in Scandinavia the reverse is true, see Johansson ao, 1990a). The mine is a corridor that quickly widens into a secondary blotch without, ar only a very short, free initial corridor part. The mine is constrained between two veins or, less frequently, a lateral vein and the leaf margin. In the pseudoblotch the frass is warm brown and coiled.

hostplants

Rosaceae, monophagous

Crataegus laevigata, monogyna.

Skala (1939a) found the mine once also on Prunus domestica. He also mentions the species from Hippophae; the latter association has also been reported by Szőcs (1977a).
