Globularia globe daisy

Dichotomous table for leafminers

1a fleck mine => 2

1b different mine type => 4

1c galls, etc => Tables for all parasites per species

2a larva mines from a case => 3

2b larva does not mine from a case: Jordanita globulariae

3a lobe case: Coleophora virgatella

3b tubular silken case: Coleophora rectilineella

4a larva a maggot => 5

4b larva with recognisable head => 6

5a corridor, then a blotch; pupation within the mine: Phytomyza globulariae
