This is a small fly whose larvae creates a mine in the leaves of Lonicera periclymenum and other closely related species, including Symphoricarpos albus. The mine is initially star-shaped, but as the larvae grows the tunnels become straighter. This species is widespread and probably common throughout western Europe.
