large blotch, larva frequently entering a second leaf to complete
development (Spencer, 1972b:
larva. Primary and secondary feeding lines indistinct. Frass in
short thread fragments. Pupation outside the mine; exit slit upper-surface
(Bladmineerders van Europa).
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 described by Nowakowski (1964).
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).
Possibly a junior synonym of Agromyza canadensis Malloch,
