According to Patočka & Turčáni (2005a) the pupae of C. heinemanni and those of C. marginea differ in the spinulation of the anterior half of the abdominal segments: fine in heinemanni, coarse in marginea. However, pupa material of marginea from Britain did not differ in this respect from a pupa from the Netherlamds that, on the basis of its mine, had been identified as heinemanni: in both cases the spinulation was equally fine.
