there was also something elsewhere that looked like the remnants of a shiny egg, so I am leaning towards coleoptera.

Only beetles are known from this host...
but I would have said Agromyzidae based on the frass pattern and linear mine. If the larva has a head/legs, I would think a lep more likely than a beetle. Though the larva's outline does seem beetleish.
