Syncopacma karvoneni (Hackman, 1950)
Possibly similar to the mine of Aproaerema anthyllidella: small full depth mine with an appreciable amount of frass. Only the first stage lives as a miner; later stages live between two or more spun leaves, causing window feeding. Pupation in the soil.
The association with Lathyrus is not certain; it moreover is possible that the species lives on other, related, herbaceous Fabaceae.
Pupation between late August and mid-September.
