Cameraria ohridella?

I think this is the leaf miner Cameraria ohridella and not Leaf blotch fungus (photo taken in Aberporth this week and the leaves are too high to reach).  Would anyone be able to confirm the ID?

  1. Hi Sarah, it's hard to tell from the photo. Guignardia aesculi is a fungus that causes brown blotches with a yellow margin - that may be the case here. If you could find a fallen leaf you may be able to see signs of the rounder brown blotches of ohridella. Sorry I can't be sure.

  2. Thanks Ina. I wasn't sure. I just thought the patches looked a bit regular and were in between the veins so could have been the leaf miner. I'll check again when I'm back.
