My daughter dug out lots of these larvae from Horse chestnut leaf scabs on this day in October
No interactions present.
Interesting. I have not seen the larva before. (From just not looking, because the mines are very very common now).

Yes, we went out specifically to look for them (as well as having a nice day out) after hearing about them on a radio prog. It is not often that such plans work, and I was surprised that a larva could be found in such a high proportion of the scabs when the covering was scratched away.
last year I posted the larva, pupae and moth.
