same mine, lighted from behind
An upper-surface corridor that widens only a little, and generally is unbranched. Often a part of the corridor loosely follows the leaf margin. Frass in two neat rows of grains or short thread fragments. Pupation outside the mine. Feeding punctures in the lower surface (always?)
Larvae have been found in May – mid June; a very common species.
BE recorded (Ellis, 2000: Leisele).
NE recorded (Hering, 1929b; de Meijere, 1939a).
LUX not recorded (Fauna Europaea, 2007).
distribution within Europe
From Scandinavia tot the Iberian Peninsula, and from Ireland to the Baltic States and Poland (Fauna Europaea, 2007).
Paraphytomyza, Phytomyza hendeliana.
The mine can be distinguished from that of the related A. cornigera with certainty only after the larve (or the pupa, in the rare cases that it gets stuck to the leaf). Yet, the corridor of hendeliana tends to be much narrower, and occurs later.
