Description:

I noticed a small seedling of Chenopodium album heavily mined. When I brought the plant in to photograph it I noticed a larva outside the mine, presumably preparing to pupate. The plant was left in water overnight and in the morning the 2 larvae shown were found in the water. I thought they were dead at first, but they are not!
