Oviposition at the underside of the leaf, usually neat the base. From there a long, narrow, slender corridor runs two or three times through the length of the leaf, to form finally an upper-surface blotch. Frass dark green, as numerous small grains in the corridor, as lumps and short threads later.
Pupation outside the mine, exit slit in upper epidermis, at the basal side of the blotch.
Larvae in September, less often also in August.
