Stigmella centifoliella mine

Rosa rugosa, Algeria, Tingad, 1100 m; leg EJ van Nieukerken & G Bryan

mine

Egg usually at the underside of the leaf. The mine is a long sinuous gallery, often with a hairpin turn. Frass in a central line, leaving a clear zone at either side; this applies also to the first part of the corridor. Borkowski (1969a) stresses that the frass never is coiled.
