miner: A large, practically full depth brownish blotch, without an initial
corridor. The mine begins somewhere on the leaf and expands in all
directions, without having much consideration with even major veins.
In this respect the mine differs from that of Fenusa
dohrnii on the same host plant. Moreover, as a rule there
is just one mine per leaf. The full grown larva makes a disc-shaped
cocoon within its mine, with a diameter of about 7-9 mm. Unlike F. dohrnii the larva is rather vividly pigmented and can
easily be observed without dissecting the mine. Like most sawflies
the larva lies belly-up in its mine (Bladmineerders van Europa).
mine is also illustrated in British
The larvae of sawflies have a head capsule, chewing mouthparts with opposable mandibles, six thoracic legs and abdominal legs (although they may be reduced) (see examples).
The larva is illustrated in British
leafminers and Bladmineerders van Europa.
The pupae of sawflies have visible head appendages, wings and legs which lie in sheaths.
The adult is illustrated in ECatSym - Electronic World Catalog of Symphyta.
