Leafmines - Cwm Clettwr and Cors Fochno

As mentioned in my previous post four of us went leafmining yesterday and came back with approximately fifty species from the two locations.  Not all mines, some larvae, pupae and a couple of adults too. Ten or so of these will need to be bred through to be sure of the species.
Tischeria ekebladella on Oak

Phyllonorycter sorbi on Rowen

Clouded Magpie larva on ?Elm
Does anyone have any idea on this as yet unidentified larva, still happily eating it's way through the leaf as I type.  Hairy and similar to some plume larva but a little too big I think.
