Mirificarma cytisella (Treitschke, 1833)
Larva among some spun leaflets. Facultative miner: sometimes the larva spins two leaves upon each other and mines them partially out from that cover. The result is fundamentally a fleck mine: a mine with an opening, by way of which the leaf has been mined out, and that contains no frass.
Univoltine; hibernation as pupa.
Not known from the Benelux countries (Fauna Europaea, 2010).
