Is that a puparium I see before me?

Bottom right in the picture - might be a pupa/puparium or it might be a dead larva. If the former then the might be Chromatomyia horticola. If the latter, then you are probably right with Phytomyza. There are pictures of a likely candidate (Phytomyza adjuncta) here -

Not in there

I'm reasonably happy that the insect was not still in the mine so perhaps one of the Phytomyza it is.
