On Cichorium intybus. @ceiseman I have documented according to what I learned from your excellent webinar. The first and second photo are of top and bottom of the leaf. The frass trail is quite clear in the third photo. I'm not sure I am seeing window paning. Several of the photos may show the larva still present.

The black shiny spot on the thorax has me confused. Is it just a spot that has been rubbed bare? I had it in a petri dish overnight, and hadn't looked at it before it had been in there for 10 hours or so.

1/8 inch grid. I'm putting this down as a Scotophaeus blackwalli, but it is so much smaller than others I have found of this species. It was caught in a pitfall trap and might have lost three legs to a rain beetle with which it shared the trap.
