Stigmella anomalella?

hi, I'm wondering if this leaf mine is Stigmella anomalella? Looking at the leaf mine site it looks as if it is one of that family and this seems to be a long gallery. It's on a cultivated rose but it's one of those huge sprawling things.

  1. Hello Mark, I'm sure that will be Stigmella anomalella. You should be able to find fresh mines soon which will have active larvae within them (easier said than done but it is always best to find occupied mines of any species if at all possible).
