Phytomyza albifrons Groschke, 1957
Long (> 7 cm) corridor. The start is lower-surface, epidermal and easily overlooked, the more so because it hardly contains any frass. The upper-surface part of the corridor is very slender. Frass in threads, often separated by frass-free segments. Pupation outside the mine; exit slit in upper surface.
Larvae in June-July and in September (Hering, 1957a).
Not known from the Benelux countries (Fauna Europaea, 2008).
