Alloclemensia mesospilella (Herrich-Schäffer, 1854)

mine

Oviposition lower-surface. From here a slender, long corridor winds through the leaf. The corridor widens rather suddenly into a full depth blotch. From this blotch a circular excision is cut, in wich the larva then is able to move freely over the leaf, and starts making fleck mines. When the case becomes too small to accomodate the growing larva, a new case is cut out af such a fleck mine.
