) sp. ??, Agromyzidae, Reliable determination is possible only after male genitalia.
From Europe be known to only one species mining on leafs of Phyllostachys mitis
only found in Italy. - Cerodontha
Zlobin, 1992. This species is primary described from Japan.

thank you for your reply. It seems to me that the leaf mines on my pictures are not so narrow as the leaf mines on the pictures of Luciano Süss. I don't know, if that is important.
The owner of the bamboo garden will try to catch some flies.

In september 2014 I found for the first time mining flies on Phyllostachys parvifolia
and Phyllostachys atrovaginata
in my garden near Hannover. I obtained a fly from a pupa and checked some outside characters according to the publication of Luciano Süss, but I didn’t extract the male genitalia. The examination results are matching hundred percent Cerodontha unisetiorbita
. Because of the orbital setulae and the venation oft he wings I can definitely exclude Cerodontha bisetiorbita
