Ochrosis ventralis (Illiger, 1807)
Narrow full depth corridor, with at least locally the frass in a very thin central line. The mine as a whole is rather long, but the larva may move to another leaf (either exteriorly or through the petiole) and make short corridors in individual leaves. The larvae is also capable of mining in the rind of a stem or to bore in the pith; in the latter case the plant may partly die off.
Larvae in June (Hering, 1957a).
