Leucoptera onobrychidella Klimesch, 1937
Oviposition on top of the midrib; even in old mines the egg shell remains visible as a shining grey dot. The larva makes a more or less oval, primary, blotch with much frass in concentric arcs. Pupation outside the mine. Only mines that are situated deep inside the plant, thereby receiving much shadow, complete their development.
Onobrychis arenaria, viciifolia.
The reference to Medicago by Maček (1999a) needs confirmation.
