Moved
Moved from Unidentified Leaf Mines.

The larva is dead, but I'm fairly sure it's this species, which would later expand the mine to a blotch. No miners are recorded from L. mariana.

 
How does one distinguish this
How does one distinguish this species, especially at this stage? By the way, if you do not wish to keep the leaf, I would eventually like it back.

 
Not many options on Lyonia
The only thing that might resemble this is Stigmella corylifoliella, which would have a persistent circular eggshell. There was no egg in evidence here, and the dead larva is more slender than a Stigmella would be.

 
Thank you!
