De larva is described by de Meijere (1935a). Rear spiraculum with 3 papillae, of which the posterior one clearly is larger than the other two, and bent like a boat-hook; this separates labiatarum from the other two Amauromyza‘s on Lamiaceae. As in all Amauromyza‘s the rear end of the is cut off at a right angle. Also the yellow colour of the rear part of the is characteristic.
