Leaf mines on the edge of a stinging nettle leaf. I have checked the British and Dutch leafminers sites but it is not clear which this may be. I have gone for Agromyza anthracina as the Dutch site states that this mine can start close to the edge, in which case the initial mine follows the leaf margin. Unfortunately the edge of this leaf is withered so not possible to check this.
