Chromatomyia gentianella (Hendel, 1932)

Diptera, Agromyzidae

mine

Initinally a narrow, rather frequently branching, corridor; further on the corridor widens very strongly. The mine begins upper-surface, but the final section may have full depth patches. Frass in isolated, relatively large, grains; close together at first, widely scattered towards the end. Pupation within the mine; the anterior spiracula of the puparium penetrate the epidermis, mostly at the underside.
