Corridor, forming a loose spiral. The sides are irregularly scalloped; the mine is full depth. Frass in a broad central line; part of it is ejected through an opening at the beginning of the corridor. The final part of the mine is a blotch, generally adjacent to the leaf margin. Later the larva lives free among spun leaves.
