bindweed (Calystegia/ Convolvulus)
< back
Mine starts as a narrow gallery leading to a clear blotch. The larva frequently makes a new mine and sometimes changes leaf. Frass is ejected from the mine, but remains caught up in the silken web beneath the mine which the larva constructs for support when entering a new mine [7-8+9] Bedellia somnulentella 264
