Scrobipalpa murinella (Duponchel, 1843)
At first a linear mine that invades the leaf from the base up. Later leaves are slit open fom the side and completely mined out. Mines mainly in the lower leaves. While moving from one leaf to the other some silk is produced. Mined leaves turn yellow, bulge up a bit and buckle; in such a leaf the pupation takes place.
