Description:

We found this inside a Birch leaf, purely by chance. It appears to be some kind of larvae but we are hoping someone might be able to let us know what it is, thanks!

I was just passing in my quest to visit all Birch Leaf Miners before posting my own - something we should all do!
I found this http://www.leafmines.co.uk/html/Lepidoptera/E.sparrmannella.htm
and this http://www.dorsetnature.co.uk/pages-moth/bf-9.html
which have the rather convincing frassthreads.
