Leaf-mine: A short rather broad linear mine, usually confined to a single leaf
segment. Pupation external (Spencer,
short and broad corridor, or more often a secondary blotch, normally
restricted to the tip of one leaf segment. Frass in strings. The
yellow larva leaves the mine before pupation. Feeding punctures
lower-surface (Bladmineerders van Europa).
Forms compact, very convoluted mines, with stringy frass (British
Larva: The larvae of flies are leg-less maggots without a head capsule (see examples). They never have thoracic or abdominal legs. They do not have chewing mouthparts, although they do have a characteristic cephalo-pharyngeal skeleton (see examples), usually visible internally through the body wall.
The larva is illustrated in Bladmineerders van Europa.
Puparium: The puparia of flies are formed within the hardened last larval skin or puparium and as a result sheaths enclosing head appendages, wings and legs are not visible externally (see examples).
Orange; posterior spiracles each with 3 bulbs (Spencer,
1976: 232). The puparium is illustrated in British
