Stigmella aurella leaf mine in evergreen Bramble Rubus sp., Rushmere St. Andrew, Suffolk, 18 March 2002. Note long sinuous galleries gradually widening. The frass is at first broken linear, then dispersed with the band of well-separated grains almost filling the gallery, and finally more carelessly arranged, but still dispersed rather than linear.
