Tephritid

Is it known if the larvae of this fly form mines in Hogweed leaves?

I believe it does mine Hogweed leaves, along with quite a wide range of other plant hosts, see:

Umbellifers

If you look at the reference Martin gave, it uses all sorts of umbellifers. In this country, it suggests only sphondylium, but mantegazzianum is listed from the Netherlands.
