2a corridor from start to end, winding freely through the leaflet; frass in a broad green central band, with tiny black grains at either side: Liriomyza congesta

2b corridor along the leaflet margin, widening into a large blotch; frass in lumps or thread fragments: Phytoliriomyza variegata

Klimesch (1950a) reports mines from northern Italy of “Stomopteryx cincticulella”; this may refer to Aproaerema cincticulella or S. vinella.
