Blotches in leaves of rockrose caused by Cistus Forester
No interactions present.
I have just come across some pictures of very similar mines caused by the bagworm Apterona helicoidella. See
This is a species that is not (yet?) on the British list but the similarity between the mines shows the potential pitfalls in identifying species on feeding signs alone.
Well done for spotting this one Robert! I had fallen into the same trap, but have now removed my original agreement to Cistus Forester and instead agreed with Brown Argus, apologies for not realising that four years ago!
