Description:

These leaf miners are in salad leaves that I am growing in my greenhouse. The leaves are mustard-like in flavour and so I think they are in the Brassicaceae - some at least probably Raphanus.
The two types of leaf belong to different species in the salad mixture, probably both Brassicaceae.

Thanks for your agreement, Robert. Nice to know that this slightly long-shot was correct.
