is this the mine of Phytomyza ranunculi? As I saw, there are unfortunately a few similar species.
Plant: Ranunculus acris

Hi Ingrid, it looks very good for P. ranunculi TumbsUp
ukflymines to P. runculivora:
"Forms an elongated linear mine with the frass grains are widely spaced, which enables distinction between this species and P.ranunculi, where the frass is in closely adjoining grains."

Greetings, Eric
