Agromyza anthracina

Is this Septoria or is this rhytisma or aporhytisma urtica (think this is more the stems?). Or of course, something completely different. Thanks for the ID - leafmines it is.

Species interactions

No interactions present.

Leaf miner?

It looks a lot like the work of leaf-mining larvae.

Spot the typo - should be Diptera, not Dipera!

...all agreed that therefore I should move to invertebrates?

Yes - you won't get any further with its identification in 'Fungi and Lichens'!!!

never enough

No agreements. I might agree to Agromyza but it's not clear cut, nor is it typical.
I am here because I am researching my own. Needless to say I have a LOT of photos - one is never enough.
I'll put a link here when I'm done

I have returned to agree, thus shifting Likelihood but I may be the only one, unless Graham graciously relents.
I have completed my post and all the research needed for a positive ID. My find, first for the County, has been confirmed by a UK leading expert.
